USA: Dr Richard Allington, yet another academic demonstrating phonicsphobia, goes too far. Fox 17 News reports...

Some outrageous comments made by phonics detractor, Dr Richard Allington, has caused quite a Twitter storm. This is yet another example of how some academics in the field of literacy undermine research-informed reading instruction - and criticise those people promoting it!

Zack Barnes alerted folks to media coverage of this story featured by Fox 17 News:

Want to see me searching for books in the library and talking about Allington's dyslexia comments, all the while in a tweed jacket? Watch the video of me talking with Fox 17 News.
