New Orleans area teachers struggling to recover from the effects of Hurricane Katrina have a new, high-tech way to seek money for their classrooms directly from donors.
The New York nonprofit group Donors Choose has promised to funnel at least $262,000 to local public school teachers from donations made on the group's Internet site. The Web site, www.donorschoose.org, allows donors to select from hundreds of specific classroom projects, from field trips to art projects, that need financing."
