This study was concerned with the student and staff perceptions of an implemented science program developed for poor readers in normal Year 8 classes at one school. Student and staff perceptions were obtained from analyses of responses to learning environment perceptual measures and interview questions. Not only did the participants respond positively to the program, but also the poor readers perceived their learning environment more favourably than the good readers in the same classrooms.
