Philanthropic Catalyst

Philanthropic Catalyst

Mrs. Jobs, philanthropist and wife of Steve Jobs, is pledging $50 million dollars as a philanthropic catalyst to create a “super school”.  There are several endowments and wealth individuals providing money to create changes in American schools.  The intent is to create reform movement in a institution that has arguably not kept up with the pace of change in our county.

At a time when political influences on curriculum, local control and funding is at an all time high the impact of financial incentives may be the right approach to develop reform pilots necessary to spur impactful reform.
