To the Editor:

Regarding your front-page article ("States Pressed to Refashion Reading First Grant Designs," Sept. 7, 2005):

Doherty and others the same ones who have miserably failed poor and minority students over the past 20-plus years? Why should Education Week or anyone else take their concerns seriously?
