The Chronicle of Philanthropy reports that in a talk at George Washington University today, Bill Gates urged president-elect Obama not to cut funding for U.S. schools or for health and poverty programs overseas. Gates recommended reducing waste and inefficiency while continuing to support proven programs. Nothing new there - Gates seems to be echoing themes from Obama's campaign so he should fine a receptive ear. Read the speech on the Gates Foundation website.
