Every Child a Reader!

It's more and more worrying that having established, through the National Strategies, brilliant programmes that work like 'Every Child a Reader' we are not continuing to fund these life changing programmes...

OK I understand the thing about headteachers making choices about what they spend their resources on but this is not even a starter for ten. The cost of failing to teach a child to read increases incrementally as they move through learning with the latest estimates being that the cost of any remedial programme later on is around ten times more expensive and the ultimate cost of failing to teach anyone to read is scarily huge; just look at the prison population which is full of them!
