It’s 2012. Anyone affiliated with public education . . . knows that last year and this year are game-changers in how we fund public education. Say goodbye to hoagie sales and car washes and hello to big-time fundraising.
As budget cuts strain schools across the country, more districts are looking for ways to bring in the big bucks on their own. PTAs, PTOs, and booster clubs may make cash from car washes and catalog sales, but as an administrator, it’s time to think on a grander scale. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a million dollars for a technology initiative? How about half a mil for an arts program? This doesn’t have to be wishful thinking.
