Gates Foundation funds Brown University's K-12 tutoring initiative that presses 'implicit bias,' 'systemic racism,' 'privilege'
The university received $1 million for a tutoring 'toolkit' it launched that embraces equity and anti-racism.
Brown is among several schools and liberal organizations that the Gates Foundation has funded.
The Gates Foundation gave Brown University nearly $1 million to fund a tutoring program embracing the concepts of “implicit bias,” “systemic racism,” and “privilege.”
The Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University received $999,260 from the Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates' nonprofit in May. The funds are designate for the university's National Student Support Accelerator initiative.
Among the toolkit's guidelines are suggested criteria for tutors' comprehension of systemic racism and antiracist theory. The document states that tutor "candidate pool[s] should reflect the backgrounds of the students being served" as well as an "acknowledgement of intrinsic bias" among hired tutors.

The Gates Foundation is active in supporting campus initiatives with social justice bents.
For instance, the organization gave $1 million to “A Pathway to Equitable Instruction” — an initiative from several universities and local governments to address “barriers to math equity” by offering resources to "develop an anti-racist math practice.”
