Educational Researcher, v29 n6 p16-26 Aug-Sep 2000
Examines one recent, influential reading methods study as an example of research that is overly promoted by the media and misused by policymakers and educational leaders to support a simple solution to raising the literacy of young children living in poverty. Suggests the study does not meet important criteria, questioning the wisdom of basing policy on a single study. (SM)
