Whole Language and the Great Plummet of 1987-92: An Urban Legend from California.
Krashen, Stephen
Phi Delta Kappan, v83 n10 p748-53 Jun 2002
Argues that California's low fourth-grade National Assessment of Educational Progress reading scores between 1987 and 1992 were not related to the whole-language approach to reading instruction introduced in 1987. Suggests that low scores are caused by limited student access to books in school and public libraries. (Contains 36 references.) (PKP)
