One NC Literacy Council in the NY Times!
May 21, 2008
Extraordinary stories are hidden behind the doors of Literacy councils. Every once in a while a story surfaces to the media.
Check out this NY Times story about an amazing one on one tutor and student in our very own Asheville, NC. Though the story has some differences to what we in the AL program at DLC are familiar with (such as a tutor who has started to loose his hearing, or working one on one with an ESOL student) many aspects of the story are so familiar (such as a student showing up to class after being awake for 20 hours because of work, or super dedicated tutors that don’t let anything stop them from helping).
Congrats to our friends at Buncombe County Literacy Council for having one extraordinary story be told!
Let’s all work towards getting these amazing literacy stories out from behind closed doors, to the top of everyone’s conversation!
