Half Empty?


Political scientist Rob Reich questions the fairness of donations to better public schools when poorer communities cannot raise as much money. This glass-half-empty perspective would restrain progress through charitable funding as long as there is even one school that might be left behind.

When a community comes together to support its school, other schools benefit. If school improvements are developed, funded, and proved with the help of a school foundation, the concept can then be adopted at other schools, with widespread benefits. The more affluent communities bear a larger share of the cost for this kind of progress.
