Good Money After Bad

Walter H. Annenberg's $1.1 billion gift to the public schools resulted in modest improvements but failed to fundamentally change American education.

He shouldn't feel so bad. At least he created modest gains.

Hell, the federal government has spent more than $160 billion over 30 years, just on remedial education, without demonstrating any gains for disadvantaged students.
