Tuesday morning at Palm Elementary, Google Austin announced that it would fully fund the classroom requests of nearly 120 schoolteachers in a five-county area including Travis and Hays counties in House District 51.
The teachers were identified through an education crowdfunding site called DonorsChoose.org.
Google’s donation of about $88,000 in supplies and materials for our Austin-area kids shows a tremendous commitment at the local level. Nearly 10,000 of our schoolchildren will directly benefit from this gift. I applaud Google for its dedication to our students and their educators.
