How do big donors influence education policy?

The Education Optimists blog is hosting interesting guest posts from researcher Robin Rogers on philanthro-policymaking.

Rogers writes about how the very wealthy can influence the direction of education with donations. In New York, a handful of millionaires recently saved the January Regents with a big donation, among other donations. She specifically discusses Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s large donation to New Jersey schools.

Rogers asks: Is this the rich saving our schools or using their dollar to experiment in education?
