The foundation is interested in proposals utilizing innovative practices in K-12 education throughout the United States. Of particular interest are: curricular and school reform initiatives; and preparation of and professional development opportunities for teachers, particularly those which encourage people of high ability and diverse background to enter and remain in K-12 teaching. In addition, the Braitmayer Foundation provides modest support of activities in Marion, Mass. and surrounding communities that will improve the quality of life for residents in the area.
