A first-of-its-kind evaluation aims to improve literacy and help Year 1 children catch up amid concerns over the latest PISA results.

    Wow amazing- hang on that's reading Recovery with a new name!!!
    Seriously someone is getting Government funding for this when funding for RR is being cut!
    Ahhh politics isn't it destructive for learning!

      I can assure you, Tony, it is nothing of the sort. Please see the MiniLit authors' evaluation of RR here:

      http://www.mq.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/171128/MUSEC-Briefings-Issue-3.pdf

      and a clear statement of the aims of all of us in the community of practitioners who strongly support evidence-based instruction here:

      I think you may be thinking of L3, a RR-based literacy disaster brought in by the NSW government. What's destructive for learning is poorly informed teachers.

      All the best,

      Lyn
