    Radio Specials Give Me Shelter: How the Bay Area is Tackling the Housing Crisis In the past five years, Bay Area home prices have surged by an astounding average of 72 percent. This is one reason why even six-figure household incomes are considered low income in certain parts of the Bay Area and why homeless tent encampments and the number of RVs lining the streets of cities across the region are growing dramatically. Currently, 1.5 million households in the Bay Area pay more than half of their income in rent. And people of color and seniors are being hit the hardest. But for the first time, the public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors are working together on creative solutions to produce, preserve and protect affordable homes for all residents. Last fall, voters passed 15 affordable housing measures throughout the Bay Area. The tech giant Facebook has committed to help build a nearly $20 million fund to partner with local governments and nonprofits to create innovative and scalable affordable housing near its Menlo Park headquarters. KQEDs Mina Kim hosts this conversation.

    1A with Joshua Johnson When Dyslexic Students Are Denied In School Dyslexia is one of the most common learning disabilities, affecting up to 17 percent of the population who have difficulty reading, writing and spelling. Recognizing dyslexia in students who are just learning to read, can be difficult, but once the disorder is identified, it can be addressed through special education and the earlier, the better. A recent investigation by American Public Media reveals that across the country, public schools are denying children proper treatment and often failing to identify them with dyslexia in the first place. The APM findings also show that the way schools handle recognizing and educating students with dyslexia could have implications for how all children are taught to read. We look at how one special needs population affects early childhood education and literacy rates across the board.
