Response to Prof. Bormuth's Paper.
Brown, Rexford
Responding to John Bormuth's econometric argument for a more balanced program of support for reading and writing instruction, this paper considers some of the reasons that literacy policy has not been formulated in the economically most rational manner. These reasons include the fact that reading instruction has become politicized, the availability of better measurement techniques for reading than for writing skills, and the friction between professional associations with overlapping interests.
