ABSTRACT
This article focuses on entrepreneurs' literacy program in Washington D.C. Lacking knowledge in the field, former entertainment lawyer Nina Zolt set out to school herself in learning theory and instruction, as well as the workings of the bureaucracy in the 65,000-student district, for insight into how best to proceed. Since she dropped off the first box of books to a single school back in 1997, Zolt has toiled full-time, and on an unpaid basis, to enhance the program and coaxed others to help her.
