LESSONS & REFLECTIONS FROM AN HISTORIC INVESTMENT IN PUBLIC EDUCATION
The final report on the Annenberg Foundation’s national effort to improve public education describes results in the areas of the Challenge’s three goals: to improve education in troubled inner-city schools, to bring long-overdue assistance to isolated rural schools, and to demonstrate that the arts should be a basic part of every child’s education. The report also highlights the Challenge’s signature feature, the use of intermediary organizations — community-based organizations such as local education funds — to facilitate large-scale urban reform. The Annenberg Challenge generated more than $1 billion in school-change investments, reaching 1.5 million children and 80,000 teachers in 2,400 schools in 35 states.
