Praise for Reconnecting Education & Foundations "Ray Bacchetti and Thomas Ehrlich have brought together an impressive constellation of thinkers to consider philanthropy's fundamentally important role in American education--past, present, and future." --Thomas Toch, cofounder and codirector, Education Sector "This volume provides a critical and constructive analysis of relationships between foundations and education institutions. It offers thoroughly researched, well reasoned, and very practical suggestions for increasing foundations' impact on the quality of K-12 and university education." --Deborah Stipek, dean, Stanford University School of Education "This fascinating book, the outcome of a project to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, asks the crucial question whether foundations can and should invest in 'educational capital' in this new century, now that the historic consensus on what makes for good education has given way to an era of uncertainty and politicization as to the goals of education. The book will convince readers that the stakes are high in resolving this dilemma in educational investment." --Stanley N. Katz, director, Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies,Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University "This impressive book by Bacchetti, Ehrlich, and their knowledgeable coauthors unveils through sound research and analysis the interlocking and often tension-ridden tripartite relationships among the institutions of private philanthropy (i.e., foundations), schools, and colleges. It is a must read for Messrs. Buffett and Gates along with thoughtful practitioners, academics, and policy analysts in the fields of philanthropy and education. It doesn't provide all of the answers but raises many very important questions." --Donald M. Stewart, visiting professor, the Harris School of Public Policy Studies, University of Chicago
