Default Re: CNN analysis: Some college athletes play like adults, read like 5th-graders

Soon, she'd meet a student-athlete who couldn't read multisyllabic words.
Blame that on "whole language reading" where the students were not taught phonics, but were taught to recognize the entire word. Whole language is fine for languages where every word has it's own symbol (i.e Japanese or Chinese). But for languages like ours, phonics is how to teach people to read.
