Will, M. (2018, October 24). Teachers Criticize Their Colleges of Ed. for Not Preparing Them to Teach Reading. Retrieved February 13, 2019

The premise of the story, reported by American Public Media’s Emily Hanford, is that scientific research has shown how children learn to read. But many teachers either don’t know that science or resist it.”Most teachers nationwide are not being taught reading science in their teacher-preparation programs because many deans and faculty in colleges of education either don’t know the science or dismiss it.”
