Detroit Students Sue Over Right To Literacy; 1 Year After Camp Fire42:26


Six students from Detroit's worst-performing public schools allege lack of books, classrooms without teachers and extreme temperatures deprived them of their right to access literacy in their public schools. We're joined by Jamarria Hall, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed against city officials. A year ago this Friday, the so-called Camp Fire ravaged the Northern California town of Paradise and claimed the lives of 85 people. Host Tonya Mosley is on the ground to bring us the stories of the people who have left and those who still call Paradise their home. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's November 7, 2019, full broadcast. You can find more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
