Seven reading experts explain why children can easily learn to read by the age of seven. If schools in your area are not hitting this standard, boycott those schools and fire the administrators.

The seven experts are: Rudolf Flesch, Sibyl Terman & Charles Walcutt; Samuel Blumenfeld; Siegfried Engelmann, Marva Collins; Don Potter; and Mona McNee. (These are some of education's real heroes.)

These experts emphasize that children must learn the ABC's and then the sounds that the letters represent. This method, known as phonics, is the road to reading. Meanwhile, our Education Establishment insists that children should memorize words as graphic diagrams. That method, known as Whole Word and many other aliases, leads to functional illiteracy..

See "42: Reading Resources" on Improve-Education.org for a list of phonics programs and much more. The opening essay is a short explanation of why Whole Word does not work.

For the other side of this story, see "Phonics vs. Whole Word -- Take 2"
