Imagine the German retreat after Stalingrad. A thousand-mile front moving steadily backwards toward Germany. Very painful for the Germans but bliss for the rest of the world.

Similarly, developments this past year point to phonics finally defeating a fake pedagogy known as  sight-words, Whole Word, balanced literacy, Dolch words, high-frequency words, all the same gimmick.

Imagine, our Education Establishment had the cunning and ruthlessness to impose this fraud on a trusting citizenry. 

Finally, a turning point..."K-12: Phonics Wins"
