HB 2058 -- Reading Instruction

Co-Sponsors:  Reid, Hartzler (124), Levin, Sallee

This bill requires that public schools ensure that
developmentally appropriate phonics instruction is provided in
kindergarten through grade 3 as part of a balanced program of
reading instruction.  The State Board of Education must provide
in-service training in such instruction.  Teacher competency
tests in grammar and developmentally appropriate phonics
instruction will be required after July 1, 2004.  School
districts are required to make an effort to inform parents about
reading instruction methods and materials used in kindergarten
through grade 3.
