Abner Hauge spent October and November investigating the nonprofit Education Matters. Education Matters is a 501(c)(4) started by Steve and Susan Chamberlin, local philanthropists who contribute to a variety of West Costa Costa County causes. The organization gives to school board races, runs a website that purports to give unbiased news and information on education, and owns the land and buildings that house four West Contra Costa charter schools. This comic asks questions about their influence over West County education, and whether a private nonprofit funded by two philanthropists should have the power it does over education and education policy.
