Startup:Education donates $120M to help education

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan committed $120 million to support education.  Their recent blog post gives an update about where the money has gone, including this emphasis on personalized learning:

We have also heard from countless parents and educators that our schools need to continue to evolve to truly prepare students for our changing world. There is no shortage of educators who are stepping up to meet this challenge. They are using new tools to personalize education for every student in the classroom – customizing instruction to students’ individual needs, learning styles, and interests – and focusing on the life skills that students will need in college and beyond.
