So, I know these things usually get posted in the OoT forum, but it seems like we get more traffic here. I'm writing a paper for my Theories of Literacy class on reading for pleasure, and the impact it has on educational performance and life success. The purpose of the survey is to get some information on educational background and whether people like to read, and what is it about reading people enjoy. If they don't enjoy it, why not and what can be done to change this? So if you guys wouldn't mind filling out the survey, I'd be most appreciative. And feel free to derail the thread into a more interesting debate about education or something.
For example, one thing I learned while doing research for the paper, is that reading for pleasure has a very direct and positive impact on academic success. Apparently, if you look at a student of color from a low economic background who enjoys reading, they perform about as well as a rich white kid who doesn't like to read. I find that fascinating.
