We are the plaintiffs of Wright v. New York, and this is why we are fighting for educational justice for all parents.
“Through the experiences of Kaylah and Kyler, I’ve learned that good teaching makes all the difference.”
My name is Keoni Wright and I’m a proud father from Brooklyn, NY. I am fighting on behalf of my seven-year-old twin daughters, Kaylah and Kyler. When my twins entered Kindergarten, they had the same desire and motivation to learn. They were split up for the first time and placed in two separate classrooms. Kaylah had a great teacher who assigned homework everyday and often communicated with me about her progress. She excelled in the classroom. Unfortunately, Kyler did not receive the same kind of effective teaching. At the end of Kindergarten and to this day, I see Kyler struggle with reading through no fault of her own. I want my daughters to have the best of everything. At the very least, they are entitled to a quality education with effective teachers. And, that’s why I became a plaintiff in this case.
