Malcolm Forbes (of the magazine fame) once said, “Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.” Open our minds we should – to the possibilities of a good education and the different ways of learning.
Coupons for Education
The Public Education Foundation’s Coupons for Education sale has raised over $1.1 million since the campaign began in 1993. This is a district-wide fundraiser that provides schools with an opportunity to sell coupon books filled with hundreds of dollars worth of discounts to local businesses. Marion County schools use the proceeds to buy classroom equipment and create special programs.
Thanks to everyone who bought (or sold) a Coupons for Education book. Collectively, our schools earned $131,478.
