By RICHARD LANGSTONAssociated PressWASHINGTON (AP)A U.S. judge in Washington says a U.K.-based nonprofit will not have to disclose how much money it has spent to educate the world.
The U.N. General Assembly will have to decide whether the U.KS. will also get a say in how much the U,K.
spends to educate its citizens.
The decision was made Tuesday after a hearing by U. S. District Judge John M. Donnelly, who was appointed to the bench by former President Barack Obama.
The nonprofit, The National Center for Educational Research and Training (NCERT), has spent $2.7 billion on educating people through the Internet.
It is part of the UK.- based World Wide Web Foundation.
Donnelly’s ruling says that NCERT’s board must disclose the names and addresses of its donors and that it must also disclose the number of students and teachers that the foundation has trained in the United States.
He also says that the nonprofit must report to Congress the number and type of education it provides and the number, type and percentage of its students who are from foreign countries.
