Nation's Reading Report

NPR's Anthony Brooks and Richard Gonzales report on two contrasting states in the Department of Education's reading report, which was released Thursday. Connecticut got the highest scores in the nation, jumping over Maine with a huge increase. California, which used to be at or near the top, continues to languish at the end of the government's table.
