 hello sunday starts 12 days of global education summits unlike any ever blended -see eg http://www.abedplay.com 

all three hub out of asia which makes sense in population terms but is sad for a diaspora scot with dc family   ; a black maryland teacher just won million dollar teacher prize last week doubtless her 500 college athletes will never meet women world's biggest money earners -japan's osaka and america's biles 


I am not sure if i have the right address for steve's friend michael probably the main charter school entrepreneur among us (clara botstein's regional partnerships dc-baltimore bridging high school and partnerships seems a different model but still trying to understand where climate's or arts' 10th-12th grade curriculum of heffersons children meets college students and up; I only met him once near washngton cathedral; I probably met him before others apart from harrison and sunita; michael had just written a book called flow which I understood to be mainly sponsored by john mackey

 if i understand correctly john kiehl (new york amd bostons leading music studio) has sound edited 2 films for mackey who is deeply concerned with where food supply chains meets nature; before ever there was virtual commerce there was mackey trying to build high quality food chains supplying usa out of texas; to start 2000 as eg open source searls and weinberger's The Cluetrain Manifesto came and went  with dotcoms and the bushwhacking of gore , I met heath at fast company's offices while he was still coordinating 200 social enterprise evening clubs (100 internationally) at  hq in boston (a year before godammed facebook) and later partly introduced alan whom i met at melissa's smiths business school umd to muhammad yunus - in any event webber who had sold fast company went on to compere the first global social business summit in berlin 2009 as well as write a usa today article asking why hadnt yunus got the nobel economics prize; mackey was arguably one of 2 american busienssmen to support yunus at corporate brand levels of leadership unless you count cnn's turner twin birth of unwomen and unfoundation; mackey tried to support microcredits in dev world places where whole foods did permanent sourcing and found conscious capitalism chapters; at the time intel's ceo craig barrett was the most extraordinary digital supporter of yunus aiming to help with digital agri and digital education; barrett retired and went off to focus on arizona states business school the tech leading OSUN partner of sharing graduate of sdg generation around the world; and then of course mackey 2010s were to soon go the way of bezos ; I understand mackey retires from whole foods next september and meanwhile one or two of us are finding out if he has a next plan

I could go on with many peoples inspiring stories but my question is do we know people who run best charter schools or playschools that all americans could adapt if america goes green in time; and do we know anyone who will effectively lead the design of how 400 billion dollars on schools of 3-5 years olds is spent; out of india sunita's family are I would say the school and methods from india all need to know first; they can deliver literacy in 30 hours among other action learning curves from montessori; meanwhile fazle abed built the worlds largest non government school system at the time when the millennial goals funded primary and safiqul designed the curriculum that pretty much every village school across bangladesh franchised 

and so when abed founded a university in 2001 - the last part of the total human development of education was playschools 3 to 5 year old; he set about with lego, and hong kong billionaires yidan as funders making sure 50 countries started experimenting with loving spaces for 3 to 5 year olds- many of the first locations outside bangladesh was refugee borders; which brings us to how will 400 billion dollars be spent next door in usa - see NextDoor Playschools 3 to 5 year olds as one example of how to chat across maryland neighborhoods; in truth the only affordable playschool design I have come across in america is rev al's the real testimony to the community where thurgood marshall grew up

I dont even know if i have got everyone's emails right; if you do see connections with or without me please tell someone;  out of glasgow cop26 where I have known smith scholars since 2008 we have a very strange problem ; people came to continue launch 1000 college teach in on climat with glasgow but no scottish vice chancellor turned up nor did gordon brown who goes all the way to dubai ro rewire branches of un education in spite of glasgow being abed's and all of engineering's alma mater and way back in 2016 at abeds 80th birthday - soros abed and bankimoon assumed colleges the world  in year 1 of sdgs 15 climax over might want their graduate students to be free to be climate collaboration entrepreneurs economistwomen.com join in women's 36 happiest collabs in sustainability generation - having shared the same classroom as david attenborough's son age 9 I dont know what to ask the attenborough family ;my dad having script written for prince charles tour of japan I dont know how to help prince charles multiple connection of royal geo society british consuls, forestry and microsolar

Subject: Mike commits $750 million to public charter schools

Mike Bloomberg: From the Bullpen


Mike believes that the future of our country depends on bold changes to education -- and he just announced a major investment designed to set those changes in motion for thousands of American public school students.

In a short video posted today and a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Mike unveiled a five-year, $750 million national initiative to advance and expand access to public charter schools.

The funding in 20 U.S. metro areas, including New York City, will support existing charter and autonomous schools, open new high quality charter schools, foster city- and state-level conditions for sustainable progress, support charter school teachers and leaders of color, and create 150,000 additional charter school seats for children.

This investment in public charter schools builds on years of advocating for student success and calling for greater accountability in our schools. Mike has seen first-hand the impact that public charter schools can have -- as well as the challenges they face from entrenched interests.

His redoubled focus comes after failures in the public education system have gone from bad to worse since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students everywhere have suffered learning loss, while already substantial achievement gaps for low-income and children of color grow even wider.

"We need a new, stronger model of public education that is based on evidence, centered on children, and built around achievement, excellence and accountability for all," Mike wrote in the Wall Street Journal. "The future of America’s most vulnerable children -- and of our country -- is riding on whether we can deliver it."
