Whoever told you that public schools do not teach direct comprehension is wrong. I teach comprehension in many different ways. First of all, I teach comprehension skills during oral reading, directed reading, and during language instruction. During oral reading I teach kids how to think about the character in the story and then this helps them recall events. We talk about the beginning, middle(problem), and ending(solution to the problem). During language they are given a simple story to read. I demonstrate how they find the answers in the story. They can underline the answers and then write the answers to the questions. During directed reading instruction I teach the above skills as well as setting, characters, main idea, etc. Hope this helps.
