Go to About Section

Kiki King and director Karolyna Mottram investigate America's illiteracy crisis, with nearly one in five adults now unable to read.

They focus on Detroit, a city where two thirds of high school students struggle with basic reading and where things have got so bad that a group of students is attempting to sue the state of Michigan for failing to teach them adequately.
