Forbes’ Top Education “Disruptors”

FORBES NAMES NEWSCHOOLS’ CEO TED MITCHELL AS ONE OF 15 EDUCATION INNOVATORS 

FORBES’ PICKS FOR INVESTING IN EDUCATION

Forbes Magazine has singled out NewSchools’ CEO Ted Mitchell on its list of 15 “education disruptors”—innovators who are making a difference, bringing new ideas that help to make education better. (Among the other honorees are two entrepreneurs in the NewSchools portfolio: Khan Academy founder Sal Khan, subject of the cover story; and Norman Atkins, who founded two ventures in our portfolio, Uncommon Schools and the Relay Graduate School of Education.)

In the same issue, Forbes singles out two places for philanthropically minded individuals to donate in order to make a difference in education: NewSchools and Khan Academy.

We hope you’ll consider Forbes’ recommendation, and share it. NewSchools raises every dollar we invest in education entrepreneurs. We’re a nonprofit venture philanthropy, and contributions are fully tax-deductible. Learn more about our portfoliohow we work, and how you can donate to support education entrepreneurs.
