Temperatures are dropping, tropical storms are brewing and TV schedules are filled with football, but there’s really just one telltale sign that summer is over: school buses once again fill our city’s streets.

Unfortunately, when many children step off the bus, they stroll into underfunded schools where teachers pay for many of their classroom’s supplies out of their own pockets.

If you want to help fund improved learning experiences for students in your own school district or elsewhere, consider making a pledge on Donorschoose.org, a crowdfunding site where teachers request donations for specific educational materials and classroom projects.
