library too hard, too big

When I briefly had a job scoring essays for the California Achievement tests, I was always sadly surprised at how much trouble some people had with them. I read one essay that just said “I did not finish” and another that said “don’t fale me.” I was reminded about this when I looked at the image on Aaron Schmidt’s post about the Jail Finds Flickr group about the things that this person found in books or on the book cart at the jail where they volunteer.
