Broad money comes "not just with strings, but ropes"

Eli Broad's influence over public education comes, not from the power of his ideas, but from the power of his money. Broad typifies the new class of ownership society power philanthropists who view democracy as an inefficient impediment to exercising their will.
The story was much the same at a public arts high school that Mr. Broad helped to start, then turned away from when the infamously sclerotic school system here failed to attract the leadership he thought would best serve the city. (NY Times)
