what happened to the $100 millions Zuckerberg gave to Newark schools?

This books looks at where the money went.
The Prize: Who's in Charge of America's Schools?
by Dale Russakoff.

The author is on Democracy Now today.
You can imagine, that the money mostly went to charter schools.

"Dale Russakoff managed to get amazing access to the inside story of Mark Zuckerberg’s giant gift to Newark’s schools. And she shows how it all fell apart, derailed and compromised by arrogant reformers, ambitious politicians, and short-sighted special interests. An essential history of the modern education-reform movement, both infuriating and inspiring."
