Fixing the teacher prob – not the higher ed, though


Update: here’s the transcript.

Watch funny Bill Gates eradicating diseases to stop the population growth and pushing the KIPP Schools hard – and also spreading the word with a book about KIPP.

First I’ve read about them in NYT (via newfocus), then in New Yorker. Gladwell’s article has an other incarnation in his new book, The Outliers.

Grab both books if you can, The Outliers is Gladwell’s best to the day, the other I’m quite interested in reading.
