Do Lexile Scores Pigeon Hole Children?

here's and interesting article that state lexile scores may actually do more harm than good.   the research shows that free choice in reading is the way to go.

Hemingway too easy for 4th graders?  The lexile score for Mr. Popper's Penguins is higher than Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises?  Ridiculous?  You bet!  Do your child a favor and stay away from lexiles.
