Donors Choose

I've heard of this before but was reminded of it by the incomparable Al Franken Show.
Check it out. It's a great way to do something for a classroom or school in a very directed, consumer-oriented sort of way.

As Jonathan Alter described it on the show: "At this not-for-profit web site, teachers submit project proposals for materials or experiences their students need to learn. These ideas become classroom reality when concerned individuals, whom we call Citizen Philanthropists, choose projects to fund."

Reverse the Raid

Sen. Durbin and Rep. Miller have introduced the Reverse the Raid on Student Aid Act of 2006.

Republicans have cut $12 billion in student aid. They're trying to rein in the deficit -- how's that been going lately? -- by screwing students. Nice. Fits right in with their vision for America. Screw everybody (except the rich, give them tax cuts).

If you're pissed off, sign the petition. If you're not, what the f%$# is wrong with you?
