This one's a big problem. Alana Alford is up to the challenge. The second-grader at Orchard Elementary School in Jackson, Miss., struggles at first with the math problem on the board: 53-26. Her teacher provides a little direction, a reminder on borrowing. Alana counts on her fingers, eyes focused. She taps a pinky on her desk, and she's got it. She writes the answer in red marker on her dry-erase board. Big smile. "I like to do math," Alana said in a soft-spoken voice, just a notch above a whisper.
