School Stories is a multimedia campaign spotlighting the repercussions and mismanagement of our educational Institutions starting with dyslexia: avoided and ignored, unidentified and misidentified.
Providing content for various platforms, School Stories gives voice to our most marginalized students the calls for accountability for denying and mistreating up to 20% of all students. Testimonies and personal accounts reveal how students and parents are misinformed, mistreated, and marginalized. Dyslexia is outright banned from discussion, even in cases where teachers and school psychologists want to address it. Studied for over a century, there is consensus in science and intervention but not in education and literacy instruction? Why are students still suffering the consequences of global disinformation and confusion? Why do 95% of adults dyslexics report lasting psychological damage in school?
The campaign consists of a growing network of nonprofits and grass roots groups, and schools. Together with strategic partners, School Stories is making strides not only in giving voice to our most vulnerable students and their parents, but also in awakening widespread acceptance of dyslexia, energizing what some professors are calling the “next civil rights movement of our time.”
It’s time we join together and stand up with our voices and vote to change the narrative before more children are negatively impacted.
