Nelson Carter Andrews, Jr.

On Stand's Nashville [[Nashville, TN Advisory Board]] (NAB) frin 2009 to present 2011
 His father Nelson Carter Andrews Sr. was on the board in 2008, but died in 2009.

Carter Andrews is Chairman and Co-Founder of Not Alone
"Carter Andrews practiced law at Tune, Entrekin and White for five years before moving into real estate development for five years. After leaving the real estate business, Andrews was the first non-founder hired at AmSurg Corp. At AmSurg, Carter developed the sales and marketing approach and developed joint venture deals with medical practices.

After helping take AmSurg public in 2000, Carter joined Little Planet Learning as the partner in charge of business development. At that time, the company was exiting the education business to focus on creating broadband online learning experiences for corporate clients. Under Carter’s 8-year sales and marketing leadership, the company established a worldwide reputation as the leader in high quality, emotionally engaging education that tackles important business and societal challenges. For example, Carter was at the helm of creating a technology-based program for the [[Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation]] to teach school principals how to prepare students for the 21st century workforce. Carter’s vision and personal experience have been the driving force behind making NOT ALONE a reality for our nation's warriors and their families."  //(info from Not Alone website 7/7/2011)//

There are two parts to this tiddlywiki.  

One part is where the money is coming from and the other part is who is leading the group.  Although, as has been pointed out to me, it is not unusual for an organization to have its big donors represented on its board, I do think it is informative to see where the sympathies with respect to education of those big donors/board members  lies. 

Is the group being led by board members who value education and pay heed to the experts in the field (i.e., educators) or are they convinced that business methods can make improve our educational system without regard to research-based educational best-practises and the experts that are in the trenches? Or even more cynically, is their agenda to privatize public education?

If you want to start with who is governing the organization, start with [[Stand for Children Governance]].  This will give you a list of choices for the various parts of Stand – both at the National and State levels.  Board members since 2005 are listed and most are linked to their business connections and will also show the contributions made over the years as based on Stand for Children’s Annual reports.

If you want to start with the money, the most recent list of donors available is from the 2010 Annual Report.  The donors are listed within their level of contribution as given on the respective Annual Report.  Again, by clicking on individual donors, various connections are given as well as known contributions over the years.  

Since the Annual Report only lists contributions by //level//, one can estimate only the low end of total contributions, i.e., the donor contributed at least as much as the low end of the range at that level.

An example:
The 2010 Annual Report lists 10 contributors (in alphabetical order) at the Patrons level which includes donations of $250,000 or more.  The second contributor listed are Anita and Joshua Bekenstein.  There is no way to tell how much the Bekensteins actually contributed, but they contributed at least $250,000.  If you click on Bekenstein, you will see that Joshua Bekenstein is with Bain Capital and is on the board of two groups that support practices that can be detrimental to public education remaining public.  You also see the level of contributions made for all the years back until 2005.  By adding up the lower end of each level’s range, the total contributions they made between 2005-2010 is ''at least: $1,150,000'' but could very well be much more.

A second example:
Number eight on the list is [[New Profit, Inc.]]  Clicking on New Profit, Inc opens a tiddler giving information to that non-profit corporation including a link to its website where you can read more about it.  In the case of non-profits, it is possible to determine how much money was contributed by looking up their 990 form for a particular year.  By adding up their giving levels, you see that between 2008-2010, New Profit Inc gave Stand at least $750,000.  By totaling the amounts found on their 990 form, the amount given is $1,458,500 with an additional $204,810 of in-kind consulting resources.
You will also see the connections of New Profit, Inc with Stand through various board members. And a listing of some of the corporations other contributions indicating an investment in several charter school chains.

For more information on the billionaires behind the business driven ed reform agenda, I recommend reading Diane Ravitch’s book The Death and Life of the Great American School System.  Here are several articles that talk about some of this:
Having been trained as a scientist, I like to present evidence and allow a person to make their own judgement.  I initially had presented the information that I gathered as I followed the money with little explanation.  I felt that the evidence spoke for itself to support my conclusion that Stand had become co-opted by the 1% that are trying, rather successfully, to impose their agenda for public school reform on the rest of us.

I was making several assumptions:
   1)	that people would intuitively understand the tiddly-wiki format
   2)	that people felt as I did about the “reform” agenda
   3)	that it would be obvious what the connections meant.

But it seems I need to provide a bit more explanation so that it is usable by all that are interested. 

''The tiddly-wiki format''
A tiddly-wiki format allows you to open links to read more about a particular topic.  Every chunk of information is contained in a //tiddler //(sort of like a post on a blog). When you click on a link – a tiddler opens with information about the link you clicked on.  The tiddler may contain more links.  One can then see the various connections easily.  Once a tiddler is opened – it stays open until you close it manually.    So if it starts to become confusing – close some of those windows.

See this article on the takeover of an independent, parent organized school:
In 2009, I was a member of a local group of Stand for Children in Massachusetts.  Even as a relatively new group, we had already successfully engaged in advocacy for new revenues for our local municipality.  Late that summer, the Ed reform bill was being discussed by the Massachusetts legislature.  We realized there were many provisions in that bill that we disagreed with, some with potentially negative consequences for funding for our local school district.  What a rude awakening to learn that the Massachusetts chapter of Stand  was supporting the bill and, in fact, pushing for measures that could hurt our local school district.  We had formed our local group with the understanding that Stand would help us advocate for funding for public education as was their stated mission and now they were supporting measures that would adversely affect our funding and were also advocating for education policy changes. I was outraged and wondered how Stand which was purportedly a grassroots organization that democratically decided on which issues to pursue as a state could be supporting such legislation that was so unfriendly to public education.  

Someone I was complaining to advised me with that oft repeated cliché:  //Follow the money.//

So I set about researching where Stand was getting their money from and who was governing the various boards.  Once I started uncovering that information for myself, I understood what had happened to Stand for Children.  Their revenues were increasingly from individuals and organizations that had their own education reform agendas.  No wonder  Stand for Children had changed from a grassroots organization that advocated for funding for public education to the top-down  “reform” policy driven organization they are today.  

For more information on this transformation, see this [[Rethinking Schools article from the summer of 2011|http://www.rethinkingschools.org/archive/26_01/26_01_sanchez.shtml]].

''Edelman Family''
Jonah is the son of [[Marion Wright Edelman]], founder of the Children's Defense Fund.  
Jonah's brother, [[Joshua Robert Edelman|http://www.publiccharters.org/About-Us/Board-of-Directors.aspx]] is on the board of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools.  Another interesting side note about Josh Edelman: he was in charge under Arne Duncan of the 22 public school closings in Chicago, see: http://susanohanian.org/show_atrocities.php?id=8857

From a 1998 study by the Aspen Institute on Children's Defense Fund:
//(talking about Jonah Edelman's model for Stand for Children)//
"Stand for Children recruits, trains and connects advocates who join Children’s Action Teams (CATs) that promote CDF’s “Leave No Child Behind” agenda and conduct local children’s service programs. While following a common CATs “Code of Conduct,” the neighborhood activists, parents, clergy, teachers and business people who are CATs members focus on local priorities in expanding awareness of children’s issues.

Weil says CDF has considered but never implemented a membership structure, deciding the trade–offs between the costs and benefits are marginal. “On the downside,” he says, “you have to worry that people may feel more of a sense of ownership of the organization and that it owes them energy on things that they care about whether it’s local problems or an issue in their family, or whatever, issues we’re not prepared to deal with.” On occasion, the organization has surveyed its supporters on what they see as the most important priorities on children’s issues."

"The [[Jubitz Family Foundation|http://www.jubitzff.org/ ]] was established in 2001 following the sale of DAT Services, a division of Jubitz Corporation, in the belief that community giving should continue at a level equal to or greater than was done historically by DAT Services. Initial funding came from Al and Nancy Jubitz and their three daughters, Elizabeth, Katherine, and Sarah. The Foundation is independent of and therefore not affiliated with Jubitz Corporation."

Stand for Children has two parts: Stand for Children, Inc. is a 501c(4) organization and Stand for Children Leadership Center is a 501c(3) organization.

They are both non-profits.  A 501c(3) group is one whose purpose is religious, educational, or otherwise charitable and derives a substantial part of its income from donations from the public.  A 501c(3) group can not support a candidate in political elections, but can do a limited amount of lobbying for a particular piece of legislation.  Donations to a 501c(3) are tax-deductible and its financial records are public.  Many 501c(3) tax forms are available through guidestar.org and other similar services.

A 501c(4) group can get involved in campaigns for political office as long as that is not its main purpose and there are no limits on lobbying.  They do have to pay tax on income used for political campaigns.  Contributions to a 501c(4) are not tax-deductible and they do not have to disclose their donors.  

Stand for Children Leadership Center states that they are a training and leadership organization.  They are training citizans to organize and advocate for education issues.
