The Guardian reports that ministers have announced a major review of the way 300,000 children with dyslexia are taught in state schools.

The children’s secretary, Ed Balls, has asked Sir Jim Rose, the former Ofsted inspector, to look at dyslexia provision in schools as part of his review of the primary curriculum.

Rose’s 2006 reading review led to the controversial introduction of synthetic phonics to teach reading in all schools.
