Philanthropy: Two Big Looks At Facebook Founder's Big Plans

Zxvczcxvc

There are two big pieces about the Chan-Zuckerberg philanthropy initiative that you should probably know about:

The first is a package of stories and charts from EdWeek, including an exclusive interview with Zuckerberg himself (Examining Mark Zuckerberg's New K-12 Giving Strategy

The second piece is a long look at How Mark Zuckerberg Should Give Away $45 Billion from Huffington Post, which includes a major section on education and some information about an international effort called Bridge International Academies.

One particularly interesting line: "The history of philanthropy is littered with projects that helped the poor at a small scale, then made them worse off at a larger one."
