The elite has become obsessed with fixing public  schools. Whether it’s Ivy League graduates flocking to Teach for America  or new-money foundations such as Gates, Broad, and Walton bestowing  billions on the cause, “for the under-40 set, education reform is what  feeding kids in Africa was in 1980,” Newark, New Jersey, education  reformer Derrell Bradford told the Associated Press last fall.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is the latest entrepreneur to join  this rush. He announced in late September that he planned to donate $100  million to the city of Newark to overhaul its school system.
