New York Times reporter Richard Pérez-Peña joins Peter Reitzes to discuss the story he has been covering regarding Philip Garber Jr., a 16 year old student who stutters, and his professor, Elizabeth Snyder. Ms. Snyder is reported to have asked Mr. Garber to bring up questions before class and after class “so we do not infringe on other students’ time.”
Mr. Pérez-Peña wrote the two articles below which have received an unprecedented amount of national and international attention.
