Failure to Learn to Read: Formulating a Policy Problem.
McGill-Franzen, Anne
Reading Research Quarterly, v22 n4 p475-90 Fall 1987
Argues that federal policy decisions have shaped a particular configuration of services for low achieving readers at the school level because prevailing definitions conceptualize reading failure as a disability rather than as a disadvantage. Notes that reading researchers must be aware of this if low achieving children are to benefit from advances in professional knowledge. (SKC)
