The Broad Foundation in Charlotte

The Charlotte Observer has published an insightful article on the Broad Foundation in Charlotte: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2011/05/08/2281054/whos-the-power-behind-cms.html.

The first paragraph: “Superintendent Peter Gorman may be the face of public education in Charlotte, but is a Los Angeles billionaire the power behind the scenes?”

Observer education reporter Ann Doss Helms also has a blog post that lays out the process by which she came to write the article, as well as the sources she drew on, which included interviewing, Web searches, tips from readers and the Parents Across America website: http://obsyourschools.blogspot.com/2011/05/broad-barrage.html.

It’s a great example of how all the independent research going on across the country is starting to make a difference. Keep it up everyone!
