Kimberly had a great idea for a way to provide access to e-learning from disadvantaged students: She took a 1995 school bus she bought in June and transformed it into the Mobile Academic Classroom (MAC).

The “mobile classroom” features six learning stations, a teacher’s station (for younger children), a mini library, encyclopedias, an assortment of learning tools, school supplies, noise cancelling headphones, educational CD’s, DVD’s., laptops, two flat screen televisions, and it’s all WI-FI accessible. The MAC will travel to school neighborhood sites in Ohio, each week, with scheduled hours of operation slated for Monday – Friday, between 9 a.m. and 6 pm.

“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the needs of the nation’s most economically disadvantaged children have exacerbated due to virtual learning limitations, technological divides with many poor households lacking computer and internet access. Additionally, with library shutdowns, vital resource materials which students need to supplement their learning capacity, has had a highly detrimental impact on poor and urban students,” Kimberly said.

What a great idea! Check it out below.
