Science of Reading Week Podcast: "The Right to Read"
While 95% of students have the ability to learn how to read, only about 35% of students in the U.S. are actually getting there. Kareem Weaver, education activist and star of the new documentary “The Right to Read,” is actively working to solve this problem.
In this podcast, Weaver sits down for a Q&A with Lexia® Chief Learning Officer Dr. Liz Brooke and Andrea Setmeyer, national chapter coordinator of The Reading League. They discuss “The Right to Read” as well as what educators and parents can do to best support their students, why educators might be hesitant to transition to a science of reading-based curriculum, and so much more.
