|"Interview: Robert C. Dinerstein"|
I just interviewed Bob Dinerstein, chairman of Everybody Wins. Everybody Wins is a mentoring organization based on the concept of one volunteer, one child, one book. I read about him in a Letter to the Editor where he mentioned that all we hear about lately is how much money there is in Washington to spend on education. He was the first one I read in a while who said we’re not accomplishing basic things like teaching kids reading without spending more money. That’s why I had him on my show, Getting Your Money’s Worth. It isn’t about spending more money. After all, haven’t we been spending enough? “It’s about the quality of what happens in the classroom,” says he, and he starts with the basic concept of interesting kids in reading as a method of giving them self confidence and an interest in learning. This Everybody Wins is a very good organization and concept. Now, if you’ve got any time to volunteer, think about it. You could do worse than spend an hour a week reading to a kid in the New York City public schools – or any schools, actually. Think about it and let me know what you think.
