Carol Lineman spent several hours at NOC’s Cordillo Learning Center, observing the program in action, focusing especially on the internet-based Compass Learning software. She saw children completing homework under the supervision of teachers from our local schools. She spoke to the children about their challenges and achievements. She saw that NOC’s learning centers provide a safe and attractive environment for children who live in poverty and have only limited academic support at home.
Based on this experience, Carol then wrote a short story that captures a typical day at an NOC learning center. Use the link below to read Carol’s story.
