Nancy Silberkleit on Comics as an Educational Resource

Here is a very interesting talk from Nancy Silberkleit, CEO of Archie Comics (and, incidentally, speaker at the 2013 Graphic Justice One-Day Symposium). She discusses the ways in which she believes comics and comic books can be an inspiring and practically useful tool for educating younger generations. Not just in terms of increasing reading skills, but also by helping them engage with complex social issues such as bullying in an accessible and entertaining format.
