"New Profit Dishes Out $1M to 7 Organizations in Personalized Learning Initiative," Edsurge wrote on April 17, 2017. This article fails to disclose that Edsurge and New Profit share a funding source: the Gates Foundation.

This sort of disclosure (or lack thereof) is particularly important as Edsurge now sells schools a service in which it recommends ed-tech products that it says schools should buy.

For more information about this and other disclosure alerts, read this blog post.
