[Correspondence] MacArthur Foundation’s investment in education: model for the future

In mid-December, 2017, the US-based MacArthur Foundation announced the long-anticipated winner of their highly coveted, and largest ever, grant, a US$100 million competition—100&Change—to fund a single proposal “promising real and measurable progress toward solving a critical problem of our time in any field and from any location”. Almost 2000 programmes worldwide submitted proposals calling for “solving society’s biggest problems with bold yet meaningful, verifiable, durable and feasible solutions” with an emphasis on people with disabilities, gender equity, and communities of interest, including potential beneficiaries who might suffer harm if their problems were not addressed immediately.
