Overview

What role does philanthropy play in K-12 education? How much private funding is devoted to public education? What kinds of programs does this funding support? What roles have philanthropists played in advancing reform? What are the challenges facing foundations that want to contribute to K-12 education? With the Best of Intentions is a pioneering effort to address these questions, which until now have rarely been examined. Bringing together a mix of researchers and practitioners, it surveys the current landscape in philanthropic giving to education, examines the major goals of recent philanthropic efforts, and looks at some of the key lessons—for educators, philanthropists, policymakers, and community leaders—of philanthropic contributions to schools and school systems. An informative and multifaceted volume, With the Best of Intentions is a provocative first look at the issues of education philanthropy that will be of interest to anyone concerned with the present and future state of education.
