Kids’ Caucus for Education


Great idea for kids to form a caucus to express themselves about education and schooling. They seem left out of so many adult discussions about schools.

Do your children have their own ideas on how parents can be more involved in their children’s education? If they do they might win $1,000 for their school and a chance to go to Washington, D.C., to share their ideas with other parents and kids, and with members of Congress. Essays must be submitted by December 1, 2005 to Boxtops for Kids Education Essay Contest.

Maybe someone from a Tablet PC school will win one for their school. We wish all entrants the best with their best efforts.
