One of a series of special reports on current trends in school policies and programs, this publication is designed to provide school practitioners and others concerned with education with current information on problems which are the core of the constantly changing education scene. This special report focuses on reading programs throughout the country and contains samples of programs that are working. One chapter identifies and describes the elements most often found in effective programs. An in-depth look at the methodology debate on the best way to teach reading is provided. The problems of teacher training, the escalating use of volunteers in reading programs, the use and abuses of standardized tests, the dyslexic child, the public relations dimensions of a reading program, and numerous other aspects associated with reading instruction are also examined.
