As the nation’s biggest-philanthropy, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is renowned for its work fighting malaria and ending global poverty. But in the U.S., it is better-known for its controversial stances on reforming American public education — most-notably its support of teacher quality reform outfits such as the National Council on Teacher Quality (an organization for which I’ve done work). Most-recently, it has given $290 million to three school districts, including the school district in Memphis, Tenn., and a coalition of charter schools led by Green Dot, to develop models of what high-quality teaching should look like.

The woman currently at the head of these Gates Foundation efforts, Vicki Phillips, offered her thoughts earlier this week.
