A new APM Reports and podcast focuses on how false assumptions about what it takes to be a skilled reader has created deep inequalities among U.S. children, putting many on a difficult path in life. Multiple studies conducted by CEDR Director and PRI affiliate Paul Morgan and his research team are referenced, including work finding that poor readers are more likely to self-report being angry, sad, and unpopular. Their research on disability under-identification is also highlighted, and Morgan is briefly interviewed during the podcast.
