Dr. Solari offers her expertise on applying evidence-based instruction across school settings and addresses why our education system needs to enact simultaneous change in all policy areas to advance literacy outcomes for all students.

At the end of the conversation, Dr. Solari and Danielle talk more about advocating for the advancement of women in science.
