Some say spelling rules are too complicated and they don't apply to enough words to make learning them worth it. There's a lot more to it than just "i before e, except after c" and "when two vowels go walking. . ." The truth is that over 90% of words follow explicit spelling rules that make words make sense. Teaching them is IMPORTANT for EVERY student - not just struggling readings and those with dyslexia.
When you consider that there are over 4 million words that are included in the English lexicon - good luck trying to memorize all the words you might want to read or write! If we left it to only those words we could memorize, our vocabulary would be very limited. Finding the patterns and rules in how words are assembled allows us to read or spell so many MORE words!
