Why cant U train me 2 read? is a brilliant, stirring, passionately advised tale of 3 scholars who fought for the fitting to profit to learn, and won—only to find that their efforts to profit to learn had hardly ever all started.
A one that can't learn can't hopefully experience a urban bus, store, take drugs, or carry a job—much much less obtain email, keep on with headlines, ship textual content messages, or write a letter to a relative. And but the easiest minds of yankee schooling can't agree at the correct manner for studying to learn. in truth, they could hardly ever choose a standard vocabulary to take advantage of in conversing approximately interpreting. therefore, for 1 / 4 of a century American colleges were riven by means of what educators name the analyzing wars, and our teenagers were stuck within the crossfire.

Fertig tells the inspiring, heartbreaking tales of those 3 kids as they try to profit to learn ahead of it's too overdue. while, she tells a narrative of significant switch in colleges nationwide—where the overwhelm of standardized exams and the presence of technocrats like New York’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, and his colleges chancellor, Joel Klein, have energized academics and oldsters to question the that means of schooling as by no means sooner than. and he or she dramatizes the method of studying to learn, displaying how the act of analyzing is little short of awesome.
Along the way in which, Fertig makes transparent that the straightforward query dealing with scholars and lecturers alike—How may still teens discover ways to read?—opens onto the wider questions of what faculties are rather for and why such a lot of of America’s faculties are faltering.

Hence ens is the proper object [proprium obiectum] of the intellect, and thus is the primary intelligible [primum intelligibile], in the way that sound is the primary audible... 18 Thus, the notion of “a being” is crucial, and everything which gets into our minds gets into them through it. It cannot be envisaged as the fruit of intellectual comparison. 19 Moreover, Thomas has not forgotten his doctrine of analogy of being in declaring “ens” the first intelligible.

[132A] Capreolus replies: … the good is a property of real being and [being] in act [entis realis et in actu], but not [of being] in its entire breadth. ad 4: mathematicals as such are not good, but they have applied to them the ratio “ens”: they are entia secundum rationem. Scotus’s fourth argument: … substance more really agrees with accident than a chimera; which is clear, because quite apart from every act of the intellect, the first two [mentioned] are beings and the third is not a being [non ens].
The first argument of Aureol is based on the problem of “addition” to the concept of “a being,” and is quite representative of his style. He says: That concept which enters into complete identity [incidit in identitatem omnimodam], nothing at all being added, with every ratio, does not say any one ratio. This proposition holds in virtue of a first principle: whatever are identical with one and the same thing are identical with each other, with that mode of identity by which they are identical with the third.
