Hello All!
If you are not from the USA you may not be aware of the struggle in the 
schools of the USA over standardized testing and standardized testing ... this 
is a 
battle fought in Board Rooms and Classrooms and University Classrooms. 

If you are from the USA, you are well aware how the battle rages over how 
reading should be taught -- a structured approach with emphasis on the parts of 
reading (phonics, etc.) or a more holistic approach. Recent Federal funding 
calls for funding only "research-based" approaches.

This article shares what is happening in New York City Schools - a bit 
different from what is happening in many places across the country -- thought 
of you might find this interesting.

Please feel encouraged to share your thoughts and ideas!
