Free Education for Anyone, Anywhere

Sal Khan is changing the way students learn.

Just four years ago, the Silicon Valley hedge-fund manager quit his job to teach math—for free—over theAssociation of Small Foundations National Conference Internet. Today, he runs the nonprofit Khan Academy with a mission to provide a free world-class education for anyone, anywhere.

Khan spoke at the Association of Small Foundations National Conference plenary lunch on Tuesday, and I had the pleasure of blogging about it for ASF’s PhilanthroFiles.
