The Right to Read

In the latest episode of Have You Heard we dig into the recent – and surprising – decision by a federal court declaring that there is in fact a constitutional right to education. One catch: the court defined that right very narrowly as a “basic minimum education.” Jennifer and Jack explore what the ruling does, and doesn’t mean, with the help of an all star cast, including Noliwe Rooks, author of Cutting School; Michael Rebell, executive director of the Center for Educational Equity; and former Detroit teacher Stephanie Griffin.
