“Let’s stop arguing about matters that do not matter and instead collaborate
to help schools improve students’ literacy proficiency”

The authors propose centering discussions of the science of reading around five values to increase the likelihood of bringing all students to high levels of literacy.
These values are (1) collective responsibility, (2) equity through higher order thinking, (3) a rigorous system, (4) accountability with transparency, and (5) stability and sustainability.
