The PTA and Reading Instruction.
Mallory, Elizabeth
The position of the PTA on issues relating to reading instruction is stated. Support for good literature is emphasized, and the topic of censorship is discussed. The methods of teaching reading are seen to involve teachers and other reading professionals, but the right to expect sound reading instruction is viewed as a basic right of the parents. The PTA's responsibility of bringing to its members accurate information about the various approaches to reading instruction is pointed out. The role of the parents and their influence on their children's reading is emphasized. Continued PTA support of school and public libraries is declared, and its advocation of book fairs is stated. The misuse of beginning readers is noted, and the right of expression in regards to quality of textbooks is clearly stated. (RT)
