Broad Prize – Aldine Stops Long Beach In Its Tracks!

So Aldine Texas won the Broad Prize* today (pdf).   They’ve been a finalist before so have earned a lot of scholarship money over the past few years and received $1 million more today.  Since Aldine isn’t huge, it raises an interesting question:  What percentage of college costs for college going youth from Aldine is the foundation (and by extension Eli and Edythe Broad) financing overall right now?  I suspect it’s significant.  And that’s good, people sometimes forget that the money these districts win is for scholarships for their students.  *I’m on the prize’s Review Board.
