    host of progressive protest

    I was reading text then I saw this sentence: A host of progressive protest that literacy is much more complicated than a simple technical mastery of reading and writing. Can you please tell me what is the meaning of "a host of progressive " ? Thank You

    Should it be "progressives" plural?

    A large number of progressives say something in protest.

    Not a teacher.

    Re: host of progressive protest

    A host of = many
    Progressives = people who are progressive thinkers
    protest = third person plural form of the verb "to protest".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
