Laurie Coffroth looked at the sorry state of funding for public education and saw a business opportunity. The Elk Grove mother of three recently launched Cash for Classrooms, which charges local businesses to have their coupons inserted into studentsâ€™ backpacks. Cash for Classrooms will funnel part of the proceeds back to schools.
With Californiaâ€™s schools losing $18 billion in state and federal funding over the last four years, itâ€™s falling on parents, teachers, students and administrators to raise the money needed to keep classrooms supplied with basics and programs like music and art part of the school day. Even some schools that are traditionally prolific fundraisers, however, are finding it more difficult to attract donations than in previous years. And like Coffroth, theyâ€™re trying all kinds of creative tactics to catch up.
