This article notes the demise of an after school program run by librarians so that children of non-English speaking students have a place to do their homework. I read often of success stories, from around the country, of after school programs affording students a place to do their work, within the school, in public libraries, in boys and girls clubs, or at the YMCA. The key to all these programs is that they tap into the hearts and souls of caring adults, dedicated to helping children, and, most importantly, they allow homework to be done outside of the home.
