"Strategies for Improving Public Education" analyzes a major Ford Foundation initiative to improve public schools from the point of view of its principal grant-making program officer. The initiative, called Constituency Building for Public School Reform (CBPSR), began in the mid-1990s and was aimed at promoting democratic participation by an informed public to advance high-quality education for all students. In sharing what was learned from the Ford Foundation’s 13-year, $45 million investment, the report aims to shed light on the relative value of different strategies.
