VIRTUAL | APRIL 11, 2024 | 7-8:30 PM EST ;

Educators are being forced to use flawed, unproven, and invalid curriculum to teach reading. Students are suffering through one-size-fits all lessons that do not address their unique needs and interests.

Join us as we: confront the lies by exposing faulty generalizations about reading instruction; present accurate research about reading; reveal who’s profiting from these lies; and hear voices from those actively working to maintain democracy in public schools.
