Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Pledge $1 Million to DonorsChoose
“Teachers do this incredible job with our kids in the classroom. And yet so often they spend … over $400 of their own money on classroom supplies, technology and books. And DonorsChoose helps support that so teachers don’t have to do that,” Melinda said.
“This is really critical if kids are going to learn what they need to know to go on to succeed in college and in society. Despite some public confusion about Common Core … teachers are telling us that these standards are actually the right ones. …We know this works. We just need to stick with it for a bit more time,” she said.
