Most public schools in South Florida provide few supplies to teachers at the start of a new school year.
Dwan Hunt McClain is a teacher at North Miami Senior High School. She said the school gives her a stapler, a pack of paper and maybe some pens.
"Everything else is on us," she said.
The Education Fund, an organization that was created to find ways for the private sector to help public education, has been providing a space for teachers to get school supplies for 25 years, through a partnership with Ocean Bank.
