New research to investigate if millions are hitting the target
Professor Geoffrey Blainey AC will launch a national first investigation of the links between philanthropy and education in Melbourne on Wednesday.
The three-year Leading Learning in Education and Philanthropy (LLEAP) project will explore whether the full potential of funding and partnerships available to Australian schools is being achieved.
Project Leader, Dr Michelle Anderson of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) said, while there is a long history of philanthropy in Australian education, some mystery surrounds how schools access and use philanthropic grants.
