As a follow-up from our previous program "Recent Trends in Education" from November 2019, this will be a discussion among peers working to discuss shared learning, best practices, and opportunities for collaboration. 

This discussion will delve into the recently released report from Grantmakers for Education - A View from the Classroom: What Teachers can tell Philanthropy about the needs of Schools. When viewed in aggregate, teacher requests reveal equity issues and a shortage of both nonacademic and academic basic needs. When teacher requests are compared to philanthropy's funding priorities from GFE's Trends in Education Philanthropy: Benchmarking 2018-19, the report shows some alignment, but also offers an important opportunity for insight. The report examines: 

  • What are the needs that teachers identify and how have they changed over time? 
  • How do requests and funding patterns differ in high- and low-poverty contexts? 
  • Where is there alignment between trends in teacher requests and trends in funder priorities? Where is there not? 

 Review the findings and engage in conversation with peers. 

This program is intended for members of Philanthropy Delaware.
