Written Off: America's Failure to Educate Dyslexic Children
Directed by Collins Abbott White
The traditional public school system has failed 20% of our student population. Children with dyslexia are bright kids who feel frustrated, picked on and written off in traditional schools, because the teachers are not equipped to teach them in the way they learn. Parents of dyslexic children struggle to get any help from a school system that barely acknowledges the condition. However, one school in Easley, South Carolina was created specifically with dyslexics in mind and wants to challenge the public school system to serve all students.

Our documentary is an in their own words telling of the struggles parents have had finding an education for their children, and the efforts it took to start a charter school specifically for students with dyslexia.
