Wall Street Journal:

... Mr. Broad is not waiting around for Washington to solve the education crisis. In 2002 the foundation launched the Broad Superintendents Academy, a 10-month management training program to prepare people from business, nonprofits, the military and government backgrounds to take leadership positions in urban public education. The theory is that people with experience in efficiently managing large organizations are the best ones to put in charge of unruly public school districts.

Give me a wealthy douchebag with a "theory," and I will show you a "venture philanthropist" who doesn't "wait around" for a second opinion.
