One of Detroit’s largest education philanthropies, The Detroit Children’s Fund, is expanding its presence in the city’s schools, laying out plans to spend upwards of $85 million by 2025 to train educators, help successful schools expand, and open new ones. The Fund has gotten off to a quick start since the arrival of Jack Elsey, executive director of the Fund, spending $7 million in the last year on a wide range of projects, including a major grant to a high-performing charter school network, the formation of a city-led education commission, a campaign to attract teachers to Detroit, and a program that trains school principals and their top advisors to raise standards in their school.
