Right to Literacy Detroit

Gary B. v. Snyder is the first federal case in the nation to seek to vindicate the right of all students to access to literacy, no matter their zip code. The case has been filed by Public Counsel and Sidley Austin LLP on behalf of a class of Detroit students who have been deprived of access to literacy and received schooling that is unequal to the schooling provided to other students in the State of Michigan.
