A View from the Classroom: What Teachers Can Tell Philanthropy About the Needs of Schools
What can over one million teachers tell us about the needs of schools? Join this presentation and discussion about the intriguing results of our latest study, A View from the Classroom: What Teachers Can Tell Philanthropy about the Needs of Schools. Celine Coggins will share what the data from 10 years of teachers’ crowdfunding requests reveal about the growing inequality and systemic inequities in America’s schools. Learn which types of requests are growing fastest, and what requests reveal about the challenges teachers face at high-poverty versus low-poverty schools.

Celine will lead a discussion on topics such as:

How do the study findings mirror or differ from your funding priorities, and the changing priorities of the field that were revealed in our latest benchmarking report?

What do the findings suggest about future directions for education policy?

What role can grantmakers play in supporting teachers and equitable policies and practices?

And more.

While others are welcome to attend, this event is intended for members and education grantmakers. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program.

Monthly Master Class

The purpose of the Monthly Master Class is to engage in deeper learning together and practice talking across difference. On the first Friday of each month, Grantmakers for Education hosts an interview-based webinar. Each session is anchored by reflections from one to two members and a nonprofit or academic leader and includes time for questions and collaborative sense-making among presenters and attendees.
