PAGE 24, 18 - Commentary
Education is now viewed by just about everyone as a matter of great national importance. Concern about the declining quality of teaching and learning crosses all geographic boundaries and is a topic of interest not only to educators but also to economists, business leaders, and others who, until recently, have not looked upon education as very important to their separate and collective futures.
FOUNDATION SUPPORT: Coverage of specific topics in Education Week is supported in part by grants from the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the CME Group Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, the Noyce Foundation, the Raikes Foundation, the Wallace Foundation, and the Walton Family Foundation. The newspaper retains sole editorial control over the content of the articles that are underwritten by the foundations.
