Changing how literacy is taught: evidence on synthetic phonics

This is an evaluation study of the national change in education policy in England that saw a refocusing of teaching of reading around synthetic phonics. This was a low cost intervention that went through a pilot and then a national rollout. The study shows in particular how this change helped narrow the gap between disadvantaged and other learners.
