Special Project: Brooklyn Urban Charter School (BUGS)

We love BUGS! This past year Learning Ally approved a special project where we provided a license to the Brooklyn Urban Garden Charter School (affectionately known as BUGS) in return for the opportunity to study their experience with Learning Ally solutions.  It was a truly fruitful year for the students and teachers, yielding results we did not expect.
