Dee wants to clarify her comments at the LVSD Board meeting.

I understand that there has been some confusion about the research I mentioned at the Board meeting. First and foremost, this researchhad absolutely nothing to do with Steve Dunn and/or his "programs." Rather, Dr. Mucherah and I focused on adolescent reading motivation and if there are any statistically significant correlations between certain motivators and academic success as tested (for the US sample of students) on the PSSA.
The *only* reference to Steve Dunn was when I told the board that he was not interested in hearing the results of this research.
