Fwd: Emily Brown has forwarded a link to you from Edutopia

I have very, very mixed feelings about this article. On the one hand, it may be one way to "fix" some of the budget problems, at least short term, BUT - as the article mentions towards the end - doesn't it take pressure and heat off the government to take care of what they're supposed to be making a priority? And what about areas where families can't afford to pay thousands each year to attend schools that are supposed to be free? However, approaching corporate donors may be one resource we could and should pursue for some needs.
Feel free to comment on this after reading the article.
