Press Releases

On December 13, 2022, a coalition of 27 organizations, sent letters to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Wallace Foundation, Windward Fund, and Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to express deep concerns over the funding of equity-centered initiatives in districts that are negatively impacting student performance.

We ask these foundations to consider reevaluating their foundation’s grant priorities so that we might work together to address and improve the quality of America’s public education system for all children.
