DFER Mentioned in New Books

From Richard Whitmire’s recent book, The Bee Eater:

Joe Williams from Democrats for Education Reform volunteered to act as the “pass through” for the grants [from the Broad Foundation and Kauffman Foundation] without taking a cent for his efforts, which allowed me to invest everything in book research. [p. xvi]

From Wendy Kopp’s recent book, A Chance to Make History:

Led by former award-winning journalist Joe Williams, Democrats for Education Reform bundles resources and support for local and national candidates who are willing to stand up for reforming education. Sometimes those stances challenge entrenched interests within the Democratic Party, and this organization offers political backing for challenging the status quo. [p. 164]
