Yes, folks, it is that time of year. You get to open up your wallets, even $5 helps people, to help little kids' school classrooms. It is no secret that public education has been enduring a long downward slide in the ranks of things that are important to voters/taxpayers in the US. But you probably didn't know just how bad it has gotten. Peruse these projects, see the things that you remember as having been the expected value (like dissection in 10th grade Biology) and wonder that this is no longer the case.
Then give. The kids will benefit.
