Why read?

ANNE BARNES, general secretary of the National Association for the Teaching of English, no less, says "the point of reading is to enjoy a good story" ("Tough words to test our children", 21 March).

What happened to the exchange of ideas, development of argument etc, or have teachers of English retreated to the story corner in the reception class?
