    THE ABC has questioned whether parents should read to their children before bedtime, claiming it could give your kids an “unfair advantage” over less fortunate children.

    “Is having a loving family an unfair advantage?” asks a story on the ABC’s website.

    “Should parents snuggling up for one last story before lights out be even a little concerned about the advantage they might be conferring?”

    The story was followed by a broadcast on the ABC’s Radio National that also tackled the apparently divisive issue of bedtime reading.

    “Evidence shows that the difference between those who get bedtime stories and those who don’t — the difference in their life chances — is bigger than the difference between those who get elite private schooling and those that don’t,” British academic Adam Swift told ABC presenter Joe Gelonesi.

    ABC has made no such claim. They (ABC) did a story on some "philosophers" and those philosophers were doing what they do (a mental exercise).

    No matter the color of your skin, your economic statue, where you live or don't live, and unless you can't read, there is no reason that a mom or dad or caregiver, can't read to a child at bedtime or at some point in time during the waking hours. The fact that some parents and caregivers neglect to do so is their fault and to try and shame those who do is sick. My child in the 7th grade read on an 11th grade level. Why? Both his mom and I read to him before he was even 12 months old. Guess we should be ashamed of ourselves for giving him an advantage over kids whose parents neglected them.

    Yes, you should be ashamed. Melissa Harris-Perry says that the government should raise all children--sort of the way that Australia did with the Aborigines as dramatized in the movie about the rabbit proof fence.

    It is so bourgeoisie not to do as the liberals say. For example, in Chicago they say to send your child to the Chicago schools but 50% of Chicago teachers send their kids to private schools.
