According to a new report, “What Education Schools Aren’t Teaching About Reading and What Elementary Teachers Aren’t Learning,” by the National Council on Teacher Quality, 85 percent of education schools aren’t teaching prospective teachers how to teach reading effectively. NCTQ analyzed 222 required reading courses from 72 schools of education. Most colleges and universities are “either turning their backs on the science or have abdicated their responsibility to prepare teachers to be effective teachers of reading,” said NCTQ President Kate Walsh.
