... the Learning Store is in full operation. It is a fully computerized individualized classroom that provides unlimited free machine time to students of all ages for remedial or enrichment work in subjects such as reading skills, spelling, basic arithmetic skills, Logo geometry, writing skills, algebra, and the like. The Learning Store is open seven days a week, from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM, and plans are being made for several neighbourhood branches. The advertisement they send out to potential students is appealing:
You set the speed at which you learn!
You really master your subject!
You pick the time you want to come in.
You learn on a fast track - no diversions, no delays.
Your success is assured!
