A Parent Guide to the Broad Foundation’s programs and policies « Parents Across America
"Eli Broad is a wealthy individual, accountable to no one but himself, who wields vast power over our public schools. Parents and community members should be aware of the extent to which the he and his foundation influence educational policies in districts throughout the country, through Broad-funded advocacy groups, Broad-sponsored experiments and reports, and the placement of Broad-trained school leaders, administrators and superintendents.<br />
<br />
Parents Across America considers Broad’s influence to be inherently undemocratic, as it disenfranchises parents and other stakeholders in an effort to privatize our public schools and imposes corporate-style policies without our consent. We strongly oppose allowing our nation’s education policy to be driven by billionaires who have no education expertise, who do not send their own children to public schools, and whose particular biases and policy preferences are damaging our children’s ability to receive a quality education."

Got Dough? Public School Reform in the Age of Venture Philanthropy
"Can anything stop foundation enablers? After 5 or 10 more years, the mess they’re making in public schooling might be so undeniable that they’ll say, “Oops, that didn’t work” & step aside. But damage might be irreparable: 1000s of closed schools, worse conditions in those open, an extreme degree of “teaching to test,” demoralized teachers, rampant corruption by private mgmt companies, 1000s of failed charter schools, & more low-income kids w/out good education. Who could possibly clean up mess?

All children should have access to a good public school. & public schools should be run by officials who answer to voters. Gates, Broad, & Walton answer to no one. Tax payers still fund more than 99% of K–12 education. Private foundations should not be setting public policy for them. Private money should not be producing what amounts to false advertising for a faulty product. The imperious overreaching of the Big 3 undermines democracy just as surely as it damages public education."
