The Broad Residency 2006-2008


My aspiration is to dramatically improve education for low-income children. My passion stems from my family's Jewish value of repairing the world. It is not enough to give charity; we must help others become self-sufficient. For every injustice I learned about -- hunger, child labor, civil rights violations -- education was the solution.

While working as a Broad Resident, Jonathan Klein (The Broad Residency 2006-2008) served as Special Assistant to the State Administrator with Oakland Unified School District.
