Wanted: a cure for colour-blindness

January 3, 2019

Turning a blind eye to the racism underlying our education system means that any solution will be partial at bestWhen the US education system was created more than 150 years ago, fewer career paths required college degrees, the student population was far less diverse, and antiquated and destructive ideas about race, gender and disability influenced perceptions of whether a student could succeed. The system was built to direct a few students (typically those who were white, male and middle-class) toward rigorous learning experiences and therefore careers that sustained their privilege, while providing a basic education to the rest. This legacy still undergirds our education system today and, as a result, race and class remain the most reliable predictors of students' academic achievements - even as our schools and nation become more diverse.Alliance issue: Systems Change, March 2019, Volume 24 , Number 1.

Philanthropy scholarship and practice -- bridging the divide - Special feature

March 7, 2017

Philanthropy is now achieving global academic visibility. The world's first school of philanthropy opened in the US in 2013 and new philanthropy centres and chairs have emerged in recent years in Africa, India and Europe. Such interest is likely to intensify as philanthropists assume growing influence over public policy and practice. Yet the study of philanthropy, such as it exists, remains relatively small compared to scholarship and teaching on politics, government and business.Alliance issue: Philanthropy scholarship and practice -- bridging the divide, March 2017, Volume 22 , Number 1.
