Walton Foundation’s pours $164 million in 2013 education grants. Who won?

The Walton Family Foundation spent more than $164 million in 2013 to promote its corporate-influenced education reform agenda in 2013, according to a new list (see below) of grants that went to dozens of organizations. The foundation’s priorities are evident in who won the biggest amounts. Among the winners are:

Teach For America, which got nearly $20 million
Charter Fund Inc.,$14.5 million
KIPP Foundation, $8.8 million
Children’s Scholarship Fund (which gives our school vouchers) $8.56 million
California Charter School Association,  $5 million.

While the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the biggest player in the education philanthropy world, the Walton Family Foundation spends an enormous sum to push school choice, vouchers and the privatization of public education. The 2013 grantee amount was higher than the $158 million it gave out in 2012, when Michelle Rhee’s StudentsFirst got $8 million.

This is just the latest example of how billionaires and their foundations have a pivotal role in driving the public education reform policy agenda as they pour money  into initiatives they personally favor. It’s the new philanthropy, and as this post makes clear, it isn’t happening just in education, but also in science.

So who came out on top in the Walton Family Foundation grant sweepstakes in 2013?  Here’s the foundation’s list of education grantees for 2013:
