Michigan State study tracked education grants from 15 largest foundations over a decade; it's "more complex than a good vs. bad paradigm," says columnist.
"A major study of public education philanthropy found that education reforms have been accompanied over the last decade by a shift in financial support from private foundations.

Varner, the Seattle Times
