Right To Read, A Film By WKAR

"In Michigan, a literacy crisis has unfolded in the educational system. Does every child deserve the right to read? Right to Read, a new documentary from WKAR, presents the moving story of Michigan families attempting to secure the right to read for their children.  Faced with challenging circumstances -- like social inequity, Michigan's Read by Grade Three law, and limited access to books -- parents, educators and experts weigh in on how to solve the literacy crisis in Michigan. Their goal?  To encourage the joy of reading and promote childhood literacy at home." - WKAR
