On wnyc, dolores perin addresses illiteracy in the public schools TC Faculty member Dolores Perin was a recent guest on The Brian Lehrer Show (WNYC), where she discussed the difficulties that many adolescents in New York City public schools have in learning to read.   Pointing out that reading difficulties loom larger the older a child becomes, Perin argued that struggling readers—especially adolescents—need strategic, individualized and compassionate assistance.
