DonorsChoose.org has joined the Get Schooled project! The Get Schooled project is partnership between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Viacom, which they hope to find new ways to improve education, raise graduation rates and better prepare students for life.
Within the next five years, the goal is to raise the percentage of students graduating from high school and post-secondary education (college, community college or trade/vocational school). DonorsChoose.org along with several other organizations are featured in the Take Action section of the site–with DonorsChoose.org allowing visitors to make a direct impact on classrooms nationwide!
