This study examines the issues underpinning current debates over 'falling literacy standards'. Rather than engaging in the debates surrounding the efficacy of particular reading programmes, it argues that the 'problem' of how to teach reading needs to be reconceptualised as a social phenonemon. The authors discuss how reading practices and the teaching of reading arise from social activity which is in turn shaped by historical, social and political contexts.
