  1. Who funds EdLeader21? One of the blogger bio’s, at this site, references EdLeader21. The recently resigned Colorado superintendent (Diane Ravitch blog), had an interview in which she spoke about her ideology of school choice. The interview was posted at EdLeader21 and, at the Koch-funded Reason Foundation.
    I contacted EdLeader21. Instead of listing the funders, as I requested, the reply was that they are a private company. If 170+ school districts are members, representing more than 2,000,000 students, the question about funding is important?
