Walton Family Foundation Aims To Bolster Charter Schools With $1 Billion In Grants

The Walton Family Foundation announced today that it will spend $1 billion over the next five years to expand “educational opportunity” across the country through partnerships with charter school operators, researchers and education reformers.

Since 1997, the foundation says it has invested more than $385 million in 2,110 new public charter schools, about a quarter of all charters in the U.S. The foundation says last year it supported 100 new charter school start-ups with more than $20 million in grants.
