    Did Student Achievement Partners receive money from the Gates Foundation?

    Directly or indirectly they are a connected to the cabal, re: Coleman, et. al.

    Student Achievement Partners was founded by David Coleman, Susan Pimentel and Jason Zimba, lead writers of the Common Core State Standards. We are a non-profit organization with one purpose: to help all students and teachers see their hard work lead to greater student achievement.
