NBC Nightly News - Helping Homeless feel at home in school
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/23634998#236349...

I saw this last night on the news and thought I would share it.

1. What is it about?
I don't watch tv news. I'll read a transcript, if there is one.

2. Here is some info:
Sorry about the lack of information before. This is the clip from the MSNBC site:

Thanks to the efforts of one retired schoolteacher, "School on Wheels" helps the children of the homeless in Los Angeles keep up in school. NBC's George Lewis reports.

Then the link to the video.

I saw it at the end of the NBC Nightly News last night during their weekly "Making a Difference" segment. I found it inspiring.

I couldn't find the whole transcript, but I don't know that I was looking in the right place.

3. That's very inspiring and so is the next report
about a school bus with laptops. The kids have an hour long ride to school and a generous donor has equipped the bus with wifi and laptops.

Thanks for sharing.
