The Reading Problem at High School Level. For many years reading has been regarded as an elementary school subject. Formal instruction in reading usually ceases with the sixth grade and continues into the upper grades and the high school.

Based upon the assumption that correct reading habits have been firmly established through the processes of elementary training there are those who believe that no further training in reading is needed, beyond elementary school levels, except in cases where marked disabilities are plainly seen.

Such a theory assumes that reading is a mechanical skill which is sufficiently developed at elementary school levels. The writings of many educational psychologists attempt to refute the validity of such an argument.
