Good luck :)

I have an Auntie who is a special education teacher. She takes kids who can't learn in the classroom environment and in just one hour per week each, she teaches them the basics of literacy & maths. One hour per week of one-on-one time and specialist learning style skills. School is a lot of baby sitting so that parents can go and work.

I am currently waist-deep in an educational entrepreneurial weekend! WooHoo! GoodsforGrades :This weekend we are creating a startup from scratch that will act as a catalyst to partner schools and corporations together for a common good. GoodsForGrades' ambition is to create an online platform whereby schools present their problems (attendance is our focus for now) and the solution they may have (student incentives, increase in funding for safety around the school, wake-up call for parents who are night shift workers, etc) and corporate sponsors choose these programs and fund them through the online platform. It's kinda like Donor's Choose, but acting on a more macro level +1 us if you think this is a great idea.. we do!
