Sighted Students Learn Braille

Here's a perfect story for me to come across after spending the weekend in Los Angeles for the Braille Challenge: a teacher in Connecticut who has created a class for sighted students to learn Braille. That's a unique approach to sensitizing sighted students to the needs of blind students, and it's exciting that one of the students involved said she plans to be a teacher of blind students when she graduates from college. I wish the story had more comment from the blind students, though.
