For those of you who missed the ABC 7 News spot last night, here's another chance to hear the success story of students at Korematsu Discovery Academy in Oakland, CA, who have seen reading test gains of 1.5 years, on average, since beginning the Fast ForWord programearlier this year. 

"You don't normally see that kind of gains," said the school's principal, Charles Wilson. "And it's not the kids fault, it's the system's fault for not providing the interventions that they need."

Wilson made the program available to his students for the first time this year with a $30,000 tech grant he received from the district.  He is now working on getting another grant to extend the program to all students at his school next year.

Scientific Learning's own Dr. Bill Jenkins is featured as well, discussing the science behind the program.
