To the letters editor:

What are Phonics Fascists (“Lam Excuses,” Letters, April 21-27)? People who won’t brook opposing opinion, such as those who would dismiss someone as a phonics fascist instead of engaging in debate? Why does the left hate phonics? Thirty years of research have shown that some students can learn to read in the absence of phonics and some cannot. Of those that cannot, children from middle- and upper-class families learn to read by getting supplementary reading education at home (phonics); children from lower-income families do not. Once again, the left is hurting most the people it claims to represent, and simply indulging its own ideological fantasies.
