Gosh, hadn't heard the term "whole language" for many years
I think that you're right -that a balance is best. Maybe your district had poor results with the focus solely on phonics and now need to swing the pendulum far to a more literature base??

We have been pretty successful with the balanced literacy philosophy based on the work of Fountas & Pinnell.
