Researchers find that two factors hinder children's literacy development: parents and other adults who limit children's experiences and their use of language; and the Federal government's goal that children must come to school "ready to learn." Schools might interpret this push for readiness as a license to teach all children the same lessons at the same time. Children at emergent levels of literacy might fail and never catch up. (MLF)
