December 23, 2015

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam are giving $10 million to the Breakthrough charter schools to add more schools in the city.

The donation is the largest in the history of the 11-school partnership that is widely considered to be the strongest charter school network in the state.

It’s also among the largest donations ever to any charter school in the nation, said Nina Rees, head of the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools. Though some schools have received much more over time, the single grant is at or near the top.
