Consider, for example, the Education Endowment Foundation. The government has invested considerable funds via the EEF to run randomized controlled trials. One of the RCT evaluations recently released by the EEF was for a programme called Switch-On Reading. What is not apparent in the headline, but appears later in the report, is that the programme is in fact a repackaging of Reading Recovery, which is now being aimed at students at the transition between Key Stages 2 and 3.

Thank you for flagging this up, Susan.

I really welcomed this contribution via the 'Horatio Speaks' blog - and took the opportunity to add to the blog posting a number of relevant threads which I've developed over time (with information and help from many others) regarding Reading Recovery and its efficacy or lack thereof (see the readers' comments section).
