Ineffective literacy instruction is the root cause of students' academic failure

Why there are too many students who are not reading and are poor readers and what should be done to fix the problems?
At least 1/3 of the students in each class are struggling to read and some of these students are of average and high intelligence. They are not reading or poor readers and spellers that they cannot succeed later even at basic jobs, thus the college blames the high schools for passing poor reader students and the high school blames the elementary for unprepared children, but what is the root cause of the literacy problem?
It is all about the instruction on how the students learn to read and spell and the problems start in kindergarten and grade one.
Kindergarten and grade one are the most critical part of the student's academic years – these are the stages where they should learn the foundations for learning to read and spell correctly and if they cannot learn these skills correctly, they are at risk for failure and will fall further behind and eventually, they will hate school and quit school – these drop out high school students are among them!
These students need explicit and systematic phonics-based instruction in how our alphabet represents sounds and this method of teaching applies to all languages such as English and French where the language is based on the alphabetic system.
We have a 100% success rate in teaching even severely dyslexic students to learn how to read because we have the expertise in literacy instruction: reading, spelling, comprehension, basic writing, and, handwriting, with content knowledge and practical skills using direct, systematic, explicit and structured multisensory techniques and principles first described by Dr. Samuel Orton in 1935.
Strategies, rules, and techniques, as well as a student's workbooks for the whole school year, words in structured and fluency format - we have written more than 100,000 words as well as clues on how to easily identify children at risk for failure- we have everything you need to be an effective reading teacher – we can make the impossible possible!
