When to start Primary Education, especially reading

Welcome to the website of Raymond and Dorothy Moore, whose research and experience produced Better Late Than EarlySchool Can Wait, and a host of other related books.  The Moore's deal with many educational topics, especially primary education. Here you can find resources and short summaries of the educational research and theories. 

My mother taught me to read with phonics and McGuffey's Readers.  I don't see why you couldn't use Charlotte Mason, Laura Berquist, Jessie Wise Bauer, etc. (or my wonderful theories all over this site) to great effect, but when?  WHEN? Now that's the key question the Moore books answered for my mother and many others.  These books take you through some pretty compelling evidence that waiting until 7 or 8 or even later will not be a problem in the long run.

Check it out--save your principles (and maybe your sanity if what you're doing now "isn't working.")
