Help a Public School win $500,000

0 comments
Kohl's Cares is donating $500,000 dollars to the top 20 schools who get the most votes on Facebook. This is a brilliant and generous idea, however, of the top 20 schools 90% of them are private or parochial schools. The schools that have the most access to money and resources are dominating this competition.

I work at a public school in the Lower East Side of Manhattan that NEEDS the money. We serve predominantly Black and Latino students. We do a lot with a little and would love to give our kids access to the resources that they deserve!! We are determined to be one of the only NYC public schools to get this money and will do whatever it takes to give our kids all that they need to be prepared for the real world.

My principal has decided to camp outside the school until we reach the top 20. We are currently at #49 and we have moved up to this spot in about a week. The media has shown interest in our story and we are hoping that by Sept. 3rd we will be in the top 20. Check out the vid and the media links on this story!

Most importantly go vote at http://bit.ly/akh7nV 5 times. School is East Side Community High School.
