"It is rarely mentioned, or even considered, that many students struggle with reading because of what teachers do or don’t do, rather than some deficiency located in the students themselves. However, that is the hypothesis I am proposing. It is we, not our struggling readers, who are the source of their reading problems." —Richard L. Allington, p. 12.
