The long, hot days of summer are a thing of the past for hundreds of thousands of Miami-Dade school kids as they headed back to class Monday for the start of the new year.
On the eve of the start of the new school year, Jim sits down for a special half hour with Miami-Dade Schools Superintendent Albert Carvalho.

Back to school. It’s just about that time again. Since 1985,The Education Fund has worked side-by-side with the private sector to direct resources where they are needed most in Miami-Dade schools.
And the Ed Fund, as it’s called is in full back-to-school mode. Right now they are collecting back-to-school supplies for its Ocean Bank Center for Education Materials, a warehouse where public school teachers in Miami-Dade can pick up free school supplies. This benefits students, obviously. But it helps out the teachers too, some of whom are spending close to one-thousand dollars of their own money for supplies and materials in a single school year. We focus on the work the Education Fund does, and how you can help them achieve their goal.
