Are Reading Standards Falling?
Hunter-Grundin, Elizabeth
English in Education, v31 n3 p40-44 Aut 1997
Finds that the Reading-for-Meaning Scale (first standardized in 1979) shows no drop in reading standards among 7- to 12-year-olds, but shows a widening performance gap between middle-class and low-income schools. Attributes this gap to segregation of schools based on socioeconomic status. Suggests that primary teachers do as good a job as they did 18 years ago. (TB)
