Consider This: Private Donations for Public Education

Sept. 12, 2013

Sarah Hill, assistant professor of political science at Cal State Fullerton, was a guest on Al Jazeera America's "Consider This" program discussing the issue of private donations to public schools. The program examined how public schools serving wealthier families often raise more money in private donations, and if that trend is contributing to the gap between rich and poor. Hill was joined by Susan Sweeney, the executive director of the California Consortium of Education Foundations.
