California Educators Discuss the Reading Crisis.
Thompson, Gail L.
Educational Forum, v64 n3 p229-34 Spr 2000
A survey of 117 California educators found that 90% believe there is a reading crisis; they identified multiple factors: teaching methods, lack of parental support, and high numbers of English-as-second-language learners; 60% felt they were inadequately prepared to teach reading. Those who rated their ability excellent or good believed in combining phonics and whole-language approaches. (SK)
