Education Professor in the News
July 7, 2018 - Newsday
For Linda Kraemer, an education professor at Molloy College in Rockville Centre, the Long Beach district is making "absolutely the right move."
"Learning should be taking place with the support of the teacher and sending kids home to learn things they didn't have time to do in the day - that is a problem," Kraemer said.
Reading is a better predictor of academic achievement, Kraemer said, noting that a child who reads for a minute a day will see a few thousand words a year while a child who reads for 20 minutes will see more than a million words.
