"As Eli Broad Steps Down, Will His Influence on K-12 Education Last?" Education Week, Oct. 16, 2017

"The 84-year-old Broad is the founder of the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, based in Los Angeles. He’s generated much national attention for his outsized influence on the charter sector, shaping hundreds of school district leaders through a training academy, some of whom continue to lead the biggest systems in the country, and energized school districts and charters seeking the prestigious Broad Prize that comes with a handsome cash award.

His departure, announced late Thursday in a piece by the New York Times, raises the question of whether the foundation will be as aggressive on education issues now that he is no longer at the helm."
