A group of teachers at Benefield Elementary School in Lawrenceville, Ga. are offering free reading classes to students this summer, the Huffington Post reports. Led by teacher Karon Stocks, more than 40 teachers are volunteering three hours once a week during the summer months to keep kids' minds sharp, helping them review what they learned during the academic year. Around 100 families have already shown up for the classes in the three weeks the teachers have been operating.
