What Johnny Can't Read

Empower students, and watch them surprise you.

Can kids handle subjects tackled in oft-banned books? Can a youth-led movement impact a nationwide movement? Can students perform a play about white supremacy and empower their peers to see themselves as heroes?

Coinciding with the release of The Children’s March, a Teaching Tolerance documentary, the Spring issue celebrates the power of students to participate in a diverse democracy and the educators who support them.
