A little over a decade ago, a new government in the United Kingdom issued a report recommending that early reading instruction include phonics. What has been the impact of that change in approach to teaching reading?

Martina Viarengo, the author of a study on this topic, joins Paul Peterson to discuss her research.

The study, “‘Teaching to Teach’ Literacy,” was co-written with Stephen J. Machin and Sandra McNally.

Martina Viarengo is an Associate Professor of International Economics at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies Geneva.
