The Right to Read

Norwalk Education Foundation in collaboration with Norwalk Public Schools presents The Right To Read

Film & Panel Discussion

When a child can’t read, their chances of incarceration, homelessness, and unemployment increase. That’s why Oakland-based NAACP activist Kareem Weaver believes literacy is one of the greatest civil rights issues of our time and is fighting for better reading instruction. “What good is winning the right to vote if we can’t even read the ballot?” Fed up with the bleak reading scores in his own community, Kareem files a petition with the Oakland Unified School District demanding change.

Dr. Alexandra Estrella, Superintendent, Norwalk Public Schools

Dr. Tamu Lucero, Superintendent, Stamford Public Schools
