Hello Liberals --
This Wednesday (26 Feb 2014) we will have a discussion of "educational innovations that actually work".
We will start by showing a video of Sal Khan's TED talk. He's done some revolutionary things ... and he has evidence showing what works and what doesn't.
This will be followed by the usual spirited discussion.
TED talk by Sal Khan
Charlie Rose interviewing Sal Khan
Our venue: The Shanty, at the corner of 4th Ave and 9th St (map) .
Informal conversation starts at 6:00. Video starts at 7:00, followed by discussion until whenever. (Note: We could not get a suitable license to show the Robert Reich video, so we're doing this instead.)
Next week (5 March 1024) our guest will be:
Don Lacey, Arizona Director for American Atheists
