  1. Very informative.It is a fact that this school brings literacy to many people.A braille translation enable a blind person to obtain, store, retrieve and communicate information.

  2. I say this is too bad, because boarding education, done right, can concentrate the brightest kids from a broad geographic area, and create an environment that values learning.
