  1. Unfortunately, reading has been one of the first casualties of the video-game revolution. Children (and young adults), who used to spend a portion of their spare time reading, now devote that time to gaming. There is a small gain in hand-eye co-ordination; but an increase in RSI (with attendant carpel tunnel issues). In any case, sports (especially outdoors) are far better for co-ordination, and untold other benefits.
    .
    So we have an entire generation, who strain to pass the Grade 10 Literacy Test. Comprehension and cognitive abilities are down: Obesity is up. You will be employing these young people in a few years. Can you imagine your budget increase for training?
    .
    I admire the parents who start taking their children to the library at an early age; and who read to them every night, without exception. Increase their power of imagination: They will take it from there.
