Beehive and new Public Internet Channel

This site might be useful for anyone serving low-income students and/or ESL students. The Beehive at http://www.thebeehive.org/
is a online resource created by a nonprofit organization to help low-income people find basic information about education, child care, jobs, immigration issues, etc. It is is written at a 5th grade reading level, and that could be especially useful to persons new to this country who are just learning to speak basic English. It also can be translated directly to Spanish, and the interface can be customized to a particular state, if desired.

The same non-profit has also announced recently that is plans to to raise $20 million to start a new project called the Public Internet Channel.
