"Scott, who has taught Prescott Elementary School children for nearly 40 years, now has an extra tool: Let's Go Learn, a Web-based, graphic-intensive literacy and mathematics program brought to the school by Oakland Technology Exchange-West, a West Oakland-based nonprofit. With donations and grants from area businesses, OTX-West distributes thousands of free, refurbished computers to homes, schools and community centers each year. It also helps middle school and high school families across the city acquire Internet service for free or cheaply"
