Cross post from eChalk list. Interesting to read the thoughts of Bill Gates.


"Fewer people remain interested in technological work as they progress
through school, and there's a particular drop-off among women and
minorities, groups that are already underrepresented in computer science"


"solutions include smaller classes; curricula focused on specific themes and
immersion of students in them; and new ways of measuring teachers and
holding them accountable."

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change
the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has." --Margaret Mead
