Professor and Student View
Stanford Today - 1979
The class of 1998-1999 made a generous gift to a local school district in Dr. Fetterman's honor.
He knew something was up when all 21 of his graduate students crowded into his office and said they needed to talk to him.
Fetterman said he expected last-minute questions about papers or exams. Instead, his students told him they had raised $10,000 in his name for the computer lab at the Belle Haven Elementary School in east Menlo Park.
Part of the graduate program is to study public policy and evaluate how it can be improved, and the students told Fetterman the inspiration for the fundraiser came from his lectures about wealthier schools that have access to computers and poorer schools that do not.
