On October 2, 2010, current and former Wisconsin educators, as well as people who said they experienced poor teaching as children, gathered to discuss the state of America's public education system.
On the agenda: "We discussed individuals possibly becoming trained on the Orton-Gillingham Method so that we could utilize those skills to develop students' reading ability at the elementary level. There are also individuals willing to volunteer their time in my classroom," says Cynthia, a Meetup attendee.
Up next: "We are hoping to generate more interest among the rest of the group that signed up to participate and plan to meet once again on the first Saturday in November to brainstorm some things we can do in our community," says Calliope, the Meetup organizer.
