Emily Hanford - I waited and waited

This is a continuation of my Emails to Emily Hanford of American Public Media.

AND I waited from September 2017 and decided to give Emily a nudge on 3.1.2019 after reading her article on 'Why Millions of kids can't read'.

Dear Emily,

I just read your article on 'Why millions of kids can't read'.

I still believe that you will make a great impact on your listeners/readers if we do a Q& A session on why kids can't read despite Phonics.

I can give suggested questions and then give you answers to the questions.

Sounds of letters are taught wrongly throughout the world and that is the main reason why many kids fail to read in English.
You may read our past correspondences below.
Wish you all the best for 2019.

I waited and then wrote another email on 7.1.2019.

Thanks for writing.

We don’t publish Q and A’s like that but I think these are good points and I am continuing to report in this topic.

Thank you.

I did not hear from Emily Hanford subsequent to that.
