Abstract

Learning doesn’t happen alone. It happens when children socially interact with their parents, teachers and the local community. The Bridge Project, a recent research study I conducted in Morgan Hill, examined the academic and social effects of an after-school tutoring program on 25 Pre-K to 6th-grade Mexican immigrant children living in an affordable housing community. The results of the study were published in an article I wrote for the July 15, 2015 issue of The Journal of Latinos and Education. The Bridge Project program operated in the community center of a Morgan Hill complex where the children and their families live.
