Teaching Methods for Reading

So, many student teachers are instructed to teach in the whole-language method despite the mandated phonics law. Not surprising. The law concerning Prop. 227 was greeted the same way. These cavalier attitudes by the “educational elite” are an affront to every taxpayer in California. What should be obvious is that the arrogance demonstrated by CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed’s “experts” is only exceeded by their incompetence. Unfortunately, taxpaying citizens lack the power to confront university administrators and faculty responsible for the abject failure of our schools.
