My students need a class set of books to use for AP World History. This is the first year the course is being offered and the school does not have money for books

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The school that I work in services students who in large part come from families living in poverty. For the 2013-2014 school year, the school is offering AP World History. Currently, the school district does not have the money to purchase these textbooks.
The students at my school are urban students who attend Public School.
Around 90% of the school population receives free or reduced lunch. Over 80% of the population of the school is African American. Despite the obstacles they are faced with, we have some very smart, passionate and driven students in attendance. These students deserve to have the best possible educational opportunities.
These textbooks will enable students to take a college level course while they are in high school. If students pass the AP exam, they will receive college credit for the course. By taking this class, students will be forced to think about college. This exposure will inspire students who never considered higher education, to strive to gain college acceptance. This opportunity could be a critical turning point in the lives of many of these students and open up a world of opportunity that otherwise may not be open to them.
This donation could potentially change the lives of students.
The opportunity to obtain free college credits and gain inspiration and belief that they can be successful in college is invaluable.
