The Second Time I Learned to Read

An appreciation of teachers who push students in challenging directions, by Stephen L. Carter, at Bloomberg View.

"My English teacher was right, and I was wrong. Some books are better than others. And as a teen I had no way of judging for myself.

"... Mrs. Dickey had taught me that there are things one ought to read. I put away the books of sports records and pulpy sci-fi."
