i.t.a: a great idea but a dismal failure – The Literacy BlogThis is JD's blog about language use, journalism, and media old and new. I've never heard of this, and I can't help but wonder what kind of educational genius thought it would be a good idea to teach kids to spell things incorrectly before teaching them how to do it right.

To this day I'm not a very fast reader, I think such a pure phonetic approach to reading encourages "hearing" every word rather than seeing it and quickly moving on. It never did me or my classmates any harm. For children to make the transition, the teacher has to make explicit to children that. So that would span about a decade.
