What's a Teacher to Do?

Are we assigning kids books that are too difficult? Is that what the problem is?

Do teachers get assignments in college and doom their hapless students to suffer through Beowulf just as they did? Or is this all a tempest in a Starbucks cup?

Should we let kids read graphic novels? Classic Comics? Cliff Notes? Cereal boxes?

Or is there a middle ground?
