The Role of Educational Foundations in Public Schools
Educational Foundations provide funds for teachers to use in the classroom or for professional development. We discuss why educational foundations are needed and how they complement and enhance public education. We also visit two classrooms to hear how educators are using grant money.
Guests on the program are:
Ellen Barol, President of the Falmouth Education Foundation
Amy Wright, President of the Bourne Education Foundation
Michael Westgate, Co-Chair of The Westgate Teacher Fellowship Fund (also known as the Westgate Fund)
Ann Westgate a committee member on the Westgate Fund.
