Who’s up for reading some George Ornell this summer?
The Hempstead Public Schools has some unique items on its summer reading list this year: F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gypsy,” and authors George Ornell and Emily Bonte, to name a few.
The list, for students pre-K to “twelve grade,” has more than 30 mistakes, including misspellings of authors’ names and book titles.
Obviously this means the state needs to dump millions more into the Hempstead school district, just to educate the so-called teachers. Now while they can’t spell or write a coherent sentence, at least this reading list is culturally diverse, as if that matters to students who can’t read. Special added bonus: It’s incoherent in English and Spanish.
