Reading Comprehension

In this post I talk about my frustration with the entrance testing at one of our local independent schools. I was horrified when the Guidance Counsellor implied that M would probably not be capable of comprehending anything she read. Exact words? “It remains to be seen whether or not she understands anything she reads.”

Imagine my immense pleasure when today I received a telephone call from the admissions department of ‘the other’ school where M tested. All of her scores were well above average and her reading comprehension? 40 correct out of 40 questions. 100%.
