Michael Miller Aide Brambila's public education, which began with her packed in a room of 50 children, ended with her alone amid a stack of volumes. As a child growing up in Jalisco, Mexico, Brambila attended first grade and second grade in a tiny, two-room schoolhouse. Afterward, she had to travel to other towns to attend secondary school; her village, with a population of about 400, didn't offer the third grade and above. Nearly 40 years later, the 50-year-old Costa Mesa resident once again went out of her way to go to school.
