Chan Zuckerberg Initiative donations made (filtered to cause areas matching Education)

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2023. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

The Outdated Study That Education Reformers Keep Citing2018-01-30Matt Barnum The AtlanticChan Zuckerberg Initiative Todd Rose New Schools Venture Fund Miscellaneous commentaryEducationArticle discusses CZI’s reliance on Bloom’s 2 sigma problem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom%27s_2_Sigma_Problem to justify its “personalized learning” approach to education reform. The article criticizes Bloom’s widely-cited paper for its sample size (“just three schools and a few hundred students”); for being outdated (so that the control group of “traditional instruction” “may have substantially changed”); because final tests appear to have been researcher-created rather than being standardized tests; and because the paper focused on traditional tutoring rather than the technology-based tutoring that CZI advocates.
