Literacy in Indiana
October 04, 2021
Not being able to read can greatly impact a person’s chances of employment and their quality of life. Today we learn about efforts to improve literacy in Indiana, and learn more about where this issue stems from.
We also discuss a new project in Indianapolis that aims to fund local efforts, from small nonprofits to individuals, working to help more kids learn how to read around the state.
