Under the Freedom of Information Act, Margaret Clark has discovered the costs for the phonics test and the phonics ‘catalogue’ offer to schools.
Download her articles ‘Whose knowledge counts in Government literacy policies and at what cost?’ from Education Journal 186 and ‘The impact of an IMPACT pamphlet: on decoding synthetic phonics’ from Education Journal 188 below, as well and the IMPACT pamphlet on decoding synthetic phonics by Andrew Davis.
Our thanks to Demitri Coryton for permission to publish these.
