Never underestimate power, never underestimate fame. And our nation is run on loyalty, whether it be in Congress or your own little home, we’re positively tribal. Being rich and famous does not entitle you to break society’s rules. From time immemorial the wealthy have paid for silence, look at banks and offshore tax accounts.
How much less California spends on each public school student than other states.
$25.4k per student in NYC, $16.7k in PA and $10.4k here in California.
How do young families keep moving to CA?
Mostly True: You are shocked because the stats are bunk. Look at how much California teachers make (2nd highest in US) and then ask how overall spending could rank 41st? Answer: the 41st stat, like the $10.4k per student stat, has been helpfully “adjusted” to eliminate salary differences.

WHAT ABOUT ALL THE MONEY FROM THE LOTTERY?
“Revenues generated from lottery have very little or no impact on overall education spending,” said Lucy Dadayan, a senior policy analyst at the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government, an Albany, New York, think tank. The reason: State legislatures often use the millions of dollars that come in from the lottery as an opportunity to reallocate other funds intended for schools from the state’s general revenue, making the overall education budget barely higher than it was before lottery money was added. “The state legislators added the funding in to the budget, and then they take it out,” said John O’Neil, communications director for the Virginia Education Association, an organization of more than 50,000 teachers and school professionals.

Big Education Ape: Oakland, CA: Billionaires Will Convene to Discuss New Plans for Privatizing Public Schools | Diane Ravitch’s blog
Stats already show that Charter Schools do not graduate their students from high school.
Billionaires want all the K12 Department of Education money meant for the common good, the commons, our common wealth for their own pocket. These billionaires want the tax payers money for their own private gain just to enrich themselves.
This has NOTHING to do with the quality of K12 Education.
The big business of selling student information and they do not protect their rights to privacy.
This is the art of the Steal.

► COLLEGE ADMISSIONS IS BRIBED
@DanaGoldstein A few months ago I was interviewing a college admissions coach who told me the following about how big of a donation it takes to get a child into an Ivy no questions asked: “There’s a certain magic number. It’s way higher than people think: $10 million.”
“This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud,” Andrew Lelling, the U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, said at a news conference. According to Lelling, the ringleader of the scam is William Singer, owner of a college counseling service called Key Worldwide Foundation, who accepted bribes totaling $25 million from parents between 2011 and 2018 “to guarantee their children’s admission to elite schools.”
“The parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege,” Lelling said. “They include, for example, the CEOs of private and public companies, successful securities and real estate investors, two well-known actresses, a famous fashion designer and the co-chairman of a global law firm.”
Also named as defendants in the indictment are Robert Zangrillo, founder and CEO of the private investment firm Dragon Global; Bill Glashan, a businessman and international private equity investor; and Gordon Caplan, a New York attorney.

How AI Will Rewire Us
Nicholas A. Christakis, Sterling Professor of Social and Natural Science at Yale and author of Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society, believes AI is the only general purpose technology (GPT) that will fundamentally change our relations towards each other. If you look at any other GPT – the steam engine, electricity, the internet – these have changed everything around us except our “love, friendship, cooperation, and teaching” – what Christakis calls our evolutionary social suite. In this Atlantic piece, he explores how AI will be the first GPT to affect our social suite. Christakis noticed some peculiar things at his Yale lab. For one, when you include a cheerful bot who admits to occasional mistakes in a group assignment, the humans in the group work better together, vs. groups with bland robots. This holds true in larger experiments, with thousands of participants: “groups with mistake-prone bots consistently outperformed groups containing bots that did not make mistakes”. ~ Joly MacFie
Don’t submit your paper to this conference! When researchers refuse to
supply their papers to the publishers who extort monopoly fees from
academic librarians, they have found the easiest way to tear down these
If you submit any paper to this conference, you will be forced
to assign your entire copyright in the paper to “Springer Nature
Switzerland AG”, now and forever, for their profit and your loss
and the public’s loss (see below).
Jun Feng is a program chair. He should know to warn authors that
the whole conference is a scam on academic authors, which steals their
copyrights in order to extract large fees from academic libraries. But
perhaps he did not mention this because he’s helping to run the scam.
I recommend publishing your work in Open Access conferences and journals in which (1) you are free to retain your copyright and control your
rights, and (2) the public is free to read your paper without paying
exhorbitant fees to a walled-garden publisher that prevents public
access to your scholarship. See
Association runs many respected conferences and does Open Access
publication of their proceedings (https://www.usenix.org/). The Public
Library of Science journals are also Open Access
(https://www.plos.org/). Open access publishing increases your impact,
because all potential readers can actually read your paper. Many
funders and academic institutions *require* that your work be published
with open access, because they have seen how the academic publishing
monopoly has damaged academic libraries (and science in general).
