Here in Michigan, schools are hurting—a lot. Classrooms are crowded, schools are closing, supplies are non-existent. Even in “wealthy” districts, the system is failing. Parents, when they can, supply the bulk of classroom supplies.
This is a good time to think about DonorsChoose, a unique charity that allows teachers to create proposals, and donors to choose what to fund. Many of these have matching funds available. Over on my left sidebar you can click over to check out my page, which is devoted to projects in Michigan. Please consider even small donations.
