Box Tops for Education

I hope I don't give people the impression that I oppose everything John Kline does. If you sift through all the posts, occasionally you'll see me agreeing with his positions on some issues, or applauding certain actions he's taken.

For example, consider the Box Tops for Education program. Box Tops for Education is an organization which has been around since 1996, with the goal of providing parents with "easy ways to raise cash for their children's schools", and has donated over $175 million so far to 86,000 schools nationwide.

And John Kline, as a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, is participating in the first-ever Box Tops for Education Kids' Caucus:

"The Box Tops for Education Kids' Caucus has provided legislators on Capitol Hill with the unique opportunity to listen to student perspectives on the critical issue of parental involvement in education," says United States Congressman John Kline (MN), a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. "The Kids' Caucus is contributing to the ongoing dialogue between students, parents, educators and policymakers to ensure we are providing the best education for our children."

Good for him.
