Emily Hanford: Our Children Can't Read

Joining us today in the Teacher’s Lounge is Emily Hanford, Senior Correspondent for APM Reports, the producer of many truly captivating education documentaries that have aired on public radio nationwide, and a host and producer on  APM’s “Educate Podcast”. 

We dive into the critically important factors of literacy in elementary education, their long-lasting effects on K12 education and adult life, why adding more reading time can be ineffective, and where some of the largest gaps are that are causing this nationwide literacy shortage.
