John Walker: 'Misty muddies the waters - again!'

John Walker comments on Misty Adoniou's piece in The Conversation:

On September 17th Misty Adoniou wrote a piece for The Conversation entitled ‘New phonics test will do nothing to improve Australian children’s literacy’. Although I’ve written a couple of times before about Ms Adoniou’s somewhat jaundiced view of phonics here and here, I thought this time I’d look more closely at the arguments she puts forward.

Her article was prompted by the release of a report by Simon Birmingham, the Australian education minister, recommending that all Year 1 pupils in Australia take part in the phonics screening check.
