Mickey speaks with Reina Prowler, CFO of Children’s Literacy Initiative. CLI helps teachers, school-based coaches, teacher leaders, principals, and district leaders implement strategies & systems for continuous improvement of early literacy instruction. We talk about CLI’s growth and transition from a literacy organization into a social justice entity that affects change and disrupts systemic oppression through early literacy. Among the things we discuss:

- Revising their literacy framework.
- Online Learning
