Thanks so much, Kurt, for the links to this valuable information. I intend to put together a handout for our next Parent/Teacher Conference.  You all might also want to view this editorial from The Deseret Morning News published Nov. 20th. http://www.deseretnews.com/sitesearch/1,5155,,00.html 
Be sure to view the comments as well.

The National Endowment for the Arts released a new report yesterday,  
November 19, 2007.  It's a bit large but should be of interest to this  
group.

Title:  To Read or Not To Read: A Question of National Consequence

Website:  http://www.nea.gov/news/news07/TRNR.html 

Summary...
A new and comprehensive analysis of reading patterns in the United  
States. To Read or Not To Read gathers statistics from more than 40  
studies on the reading habits and skills of children, teenagers, and  
adults. The compendium reveals recent declines in voluntary reading  
and test scores alike, exposing trends that have severe consequences  
for American society.
