Beyond a Basic Right to Literacy

“For these are all of our children, we will all profit or pay for what they become” –James Baldwin

Michigan State University’s English Education faculty stand in solidarity with the Detroit youth and their families who brought a lawsuit against the state of Michigan for a basic right to literacy. As literacy researchers and teacher educators, we are offering this free virtual critical literacies program because we believe that Detroit youth deserve more than a basic literacy education.
