In the News: Eli Broad, Giant of Education Philanthropy, is Retiring – by Education Next

0

Last week, Eli Broad announced that he would be retiring from his work at the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation in order to spend more time with his family. The Broads have given away more than $4 billion to education, health and science research, and contemporary-arts causes, Carolyn Phenicie writes in the L.A. School Report. She explains

Broad has long backed charter schools and other public education reforms. The Broad Foundation’s education grant recipients include some of the most prominent organizations in education reform, from Teach for America to KIPP to Harvard University.

“The problem [of failing American public schools] is immense. The solution must be big enough to match it. But there is good news. It is possible to challenge the status quo while honoring good teachers and defending public education,” Broad wrote in a 2012 Education Week commentary titled “Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste.”

Eli Broad wrote a short piece for Education Next about his own education in 2006.

Mike Petrilli reviewed Broad’s memoir in 2012.
