Education Leaders of Color: Same Reforms, Newly Packaged and Gates Funded



The Gates Foundation is funding a brand-spanking new corporate reform nonprofit (that happens to be stuffed with veterans from two very familiar corporate reform nonprofits): Education Leaders of Color (EdLoC).
EdLoC (EIN 812253548) received its nonprofit status May 01, 2016.
Gates started supporting EdLoC in June:
Date: June 2016
Purpose: to support the staffing and general infrastructure necessary to develop a new organization of talented leaders of color who are uniquely positioned to transform the national and local education landscape to achieve improvement on a scale that we all seek in the education and lives of underserved children of color
Amount: $300,000
Term: 7
Topic: Not Available
Program: United States
Grantee Location: Whittier, California
Turns out that Mark Zucerkberg was also sending money to EdLoC even before EdLoC had its own website.
This *talented* group is set to put a new, not-so-white face on the worn-out wonders of test-centric, privatizing reforms propagated by the likes of Teach for America (TFA) Education Leaders of Color: Same Reforms, Newly Packaged and Gates Funded | deutsch29:
