Providing High-Quality Teachers for All Children

Providing High-Quality Teachers for All Children

My philanthropic purpose is to ensure all children in the United States have high-quality teachers. As a former educator, I witnessed firsthand the disparities between students with and without privilege in our country. Time and time again I saw that the kids who deserved the best teachers usually got the worst: instructors who were inexperienced and under-qualified. This unsettling reality is both an issue of supply and allocation of resources. Why don’t we have enough quality teachers? Why aren’t our quality teachers more fairly distributed?

Philanthropy and the Wild West

With 13 years of teaching philanthropy at Stanford Graduate School of Business behind me, I’ve designed Giving 2.0 ProjectU as an open-source initiative that will make 100 percent of my research, case studies and teaching materials available for free online to any educator wanting to teach philanthropy and any student wanting to learn about it.
