On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle looks at the school reform lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union’s Michigan affiliate, and explains why we must take on the illiteracy that is the key symptom of the education crisis. It is a social imperative, economic necessity, and moral commandment to ensure that all children are proficient in reading so they can successfully choose their own paths in life.
