Slideshow: GOOD, Education Experts Talk High Expectations

Photos from last night's GOOD Education Event. The topic of the night: Getting students to set high expectations.

On three Thursdays over the past month—at our kickoff event on August 19, our discussion about enabling creativity on September 9, and our discussion about content on September 16—we've gathered to talk about ensuring that all kids are on track to receive the 21st century education they deserve.

Yesterday's final panel focused on how to urge students to set high expectations for academic achievement. The panelists were: JB Schramm (College Summit), Estelle Reyes (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship), Paul Miller (Teach for America), and Steve Zimmer (Board of Education, LAUSD)


Check out our slideshow of photos from last night's event. And thanks to everyone who came out for any or all of the GOOD education events. You made them a resounding success and got us really excited about the hard (but rewarding) work ahead of all of us.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.

In a move that feels like the subject line of a spam email or the premise of a bad '80s movie, online shopping mogul Yusaku Maezawa is giving away money as a social experiment.

Maezawa will give ¥1 million yen ($9,130) to 1,000 followers who retweeted his January 1st post announcing the giveaway. The deadline to retweet was Tuesday, January 7.
