Meira Levinson discusses the ethics of private donations in this month's "Ethical Educator" column in AASA.
"Scenario: The education foundation in a school district is raising funds to renovate art and technology classrooms badly in need of updating in several schools.

Should the district’s leadership recommend the foundation board turn down the donation?"
