Zuckerberg Pours $100 Million Into NJ Education, Gets No Results September 26, 2015Posted by geoff in News.
Sorry, Mark, but reality is why we can’t have nice things. No matter how much money you throw at a social institution, it will never accomplish your goal:
In 2010, Mark Zuckerberg donated $100 million to Newark, New Jersey’s failing public-school system with the intention of turning around the schools in five years.
The goals Zuckerberg set out to achieve — to enact a number of reforms that would make Newark a model city for education reform — are widely seen as a failure, journalist Dale Russakoff told Business Insider.
Sadly, Zuckerberg was probably surprised at a result that was obvious to us. At least he put his money where his mouth was.
