* It is unfortunate that Colin Richards chose to use the recommendations of the Rose Review of the teaching of reading as his example of the usurpation of teacher professionalism ("Dissent in a sentence", TES, April 21). Most parents believe professionalism means using evidence-based practices.
"Autonomy" over teaching method is not a compelling argument when so many children reach secondary school with inadequate literacy skills.
