- The strength
of our nation depends on the strength of our schools, especially
those in large urban districts that serve so many of our children.
Broad Prize finalist districts are doing what some say is
impossible -- improving students' performance, regardless
of their race or family income -- while at the same time closing
persistent achievement gaps. Other urban districts nationwide
can learn a great deal from what is working in Broad Prize
Broad # Nation,
experienced leaders like these, who have stepped forward and
committed to the critical task of transforming urban school
systems, offer new promise to raising student achievement
for every student in our urban centers. We are excited to
train this new class with the skills necessary to effectively
manage an urban school district.
Broad # Talent,
- To me,
money is a means to do good. I reached a point in my life
where I had enjoyed tremendous business success that afforded
my family everything we could possibly want. My wife and I
then decided that we could use our wealth to make a difference.
So we created the Broad Foundations to do four things: to
improve urban public education, to support innovative scientific
and medical research, to foster art appreciation for audiences
worldwide and to support civic initiatives in Los Angeles.
Broad # Meaning,
- I love
business. I love helping urban communities grow. I love putting
people to work of color. I love making sure.. like right now
the whole mortgage crisis, I want to help people get back
into their homes.
