Abstract: As professional, experienced educators, we have gained many understandings about teaching reading based on our work with our students, research and theory, and our beliefs about "what really matters" (Allington, 2001) in reading instruction. We are concerned about the increasing control that is being exerted over reading instruction in some elementary schools in the United States and some of the messages about reading instruction that have been reported in the popular press. Therefore, we would like to provide some of our perspectives on reading instruction in an attempt to help parents, families, and other community members hear from educators on some of the important issues surrounding reading instruction.
