Dear Parents, Welcome to the Confusing World of Reading Instruction

I am reaching out about a subject that I know will be extremely important to you – the question of whether or not your child learns to read in the early years of school. Some of you might be alarmed at the thought that this would even be open to question. I can hear you now: “Surely, if my child is attending a local school, irrespective of education sector, they are going to learn to read?! Why would I even need to worry about this?” I know that many of you are concerned about this, though, because I regularly hear from parents via email. So I thought I would compile some information here about regularly asked questions and concerns.
Unfortunately, all is not as it should be when it comes to how we teach our children to read, and parents need to be well-informed about this.
