Foundations can create a system of winners and losers. Wealthier communities have the ability to bring in more money, while less well-to-do districts can be left behind.  "They simply don't have the means to generate those kinds of dollars," said Mike Anderson, executive director of the St. Paul Public Schools Foundation.  That's why he believes that it's the job of the taxpayers to fund the core functions of education, he said. Anderson's group provides a tutoring program that serves thousands of students across the city and gives grants to teachers to enhance curriculum and offer additional programs to students, like nature journaling or art camps.
