Much has been written about reading. Hundreds of research projects have been carried out to determine just what can be done to improve the teaching of reading in the nation's schools. From all sides come advice, suggestions, panaceas and gimmicks to make all children accomplished readers. School mail is filled with advertisements extolling new books, workbooks, programs, and what-have-you that will greatly improve the school reading program. Millions of dollars have been spent purchasing these materials and yet reading is still a major problem in every school.
