This past Tuesday WAER aired the first of a special four part series from American Public Media  examining the current state of education. Scientific research has shown how children learn to read and how they should be taught. But many educators don't know the science and, in some cases, actively resist it. As a result, millions of kids are being set up to fail.

Listen to the first part of this series below, and then join WAER each remaining Tuesday in October at 7pm for the rest of APM Reports: Focused on Education.
