AN EMBRACING REACH: Back in January, we wrote about how NewSchools Venture Fund was spinning out its Seed Fund. Now all the paperwork is done and out pops Reach Capital, led by Jennifer Carolan. Yep, we're biased; Carolan invested in EdSurge. But we cheer when she writes: "At its worst, technology spending in education can drain precious time and money from our educational system and work counter to the relationships that are critical for a child's success. At its best, edtech can produce life changing outcomes." Read her account of what Reach aims to do here.
