Just watch the encore presentation again.  I am still shocked by how 5th-grade kids can’t even spell very basic words such as "people", "blue".  No wonder that school fell into the poorest rating by Fraser Institute.  However, I appreciate the tenacious effort by those dedicated teachers.  I feel helpless and a little hopeless about the situation.   With this story airing on national television, more people will be aware of the issue.  Hopefully this will bring more help for those kids.
