Students are leading with reading this summer as part of a summer literacy enrichment program. "Freedom School" is now underway everyday at Chicora Elementary School. "It's really fun and it usually wakes us up in the morning," rising 7th grader Sarah Abdelrahim said. One-hundred students are taking part in the program this summer, and they are all from Title One schools, which are schools with a high low-income population. "Freedom School" is sponsored by the non-profit Metanoia group and gets funding from donations and the national Children's Defense Fund. The program has been going on for six years now in North Charleston.
