Private Money in US Education

The Education Policy Group of DAF, headed by Amy Sulkis Below, invites you to hear Megan Tompkins-Strange address the issue of how the creeping acceptance of private money has supported and accentuated inequality in general. Philanthropy (including corporate philanthropy) has an impact on public education. There is the question of charter schools and also that of private on-line education (secondary and higher), among others. This is an issue on which Democrats have ambiguous positions, and any debate is interesting.
Megan Tompkins-Stange is an assistant professor of public policy at the University of Michigan and is in Paris for a sabbatical. She is the author of Policy Patrons: Philanthropy, Education Reform, and the Politics of Influence (Harvard Education Press, 2016). Her research and teaching interests center on K-12 education and nonprofit management, with a focus on the influence of private philanthropy on public education policy and reform.
