Statistics compiled by the Bureau of Education show that of children from 10 to 14 years of age there were in 1910 only 22 out of every 1,000 who could neither read nor write[.] ...
U.S. students were at 98% literate a century ago.
So apparently they knew how to teach children to read in 1910.
Also, there was no such thing as 'functional illiteracy,' that is, a kind of low, inadequate reading ability which is the product of faulty teaching methods in our schools.
The illiteracy of 1910 was the result of some children having no schooling.
Functional illiteracy is a result of the way we actually teach children to read in our schools,
our teachers today, whether they know it or not, have been deliberately trained to produce functional illiteracy.
The vast majority of children were reading and writing 100 years ago. Thanks to deliberate policies of our Education Establishment, we now have 2/3 testing below proficient - 67%!.
To believe that such massive functional illiteracy is an unplanned phenomenon beyond the control of anyone is to believe that our educators with all their doctoral degrees literally don't know what they are doing.
After all, teaching children to read is no big mystery. Teachers have been doing it for the last 3,000 years,
and as the US government's own statistics show they were doing it well in 1910 and up to about the 1930s when the big switch took place in teaching methods.
