The Schwabs' Story
[quote - © Copyright 2004 SchwabLearning.org.]

... "That's the real problem with kids who struggle with learning ... Some kids feel like they're stupid. I want them to know that they're not. They just learn differently. Once they understand that and have the tools to learn in their individual way, then they can feel good about themselves."

-- Charles Schwab
