Abstract

The issue to be addressed is whether a predictable governmental denial of an equal opportunity for literacy to some groups of children in America because of the school district they live in or the school they attend violates the Equal Protection Clause objective of eliminating harmful governmental stigmas that serve as unreasonable obstacles to promoting personal merit. A federal civil-rights lawsuit to secure the right of access to literacy was litigated in Michigan.
