The article focuses on the report released by the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) 1987 reading test in the U.S. The release of the report has been delayed for more than five months because researchers have been investigating why the results seemed to indicate a large decline in reading performance among 9- and 11-year-olds between 1984 and 1986.
