+ - Is Germany raising a generation of illiterates?

Submitted by StartsWithABang
StartsWithABang (3485481) writes "Over at Starts With A Bang, the weekly question comes in from Germany, where we're informed:

'In Germany, many teachers have adopted a new way of teaching children to write properly. The way is called “Writing by Reading” and essentially says: Write as you wish, you’re not bound by any rules. [] [R]ecently, this way of teaching has been heavily criticized [link in German], but not before it has been “tested” on several years of school children.'

The reading wars have been going on in the US, too, but will this wind up having a negative outcome? Or, as this piece argues, is it likely to be a wash?"
