I was informed last Friday by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) that another of my (now) 231 complaints (probably the most ever filed by an individual) alleging Title IX violations in higher education has been successfully resolved in my favor. That brings the total number of Title IX complaints to date that have been resolved in my favor to 27 and there are more than 80 ongoing OCR investigations based on my complaints that I expect to also be successfully resolved in my favor (given the clarity of Title IX above and the clear violations of that law). Successful resolutions are illegal Title IX violations involving sex-specific female-only programs that are corrected with one of three outcomes: 1) the discriminatory program is discontinued, 2) the discriminatory female-only program is offset with an equivalent male-only program, or 3) the discriminatory female-only program is converted to a program

Youdao (DAO), a subsidiary of NetEase (NTES), is an online education platform focused on the China market. From a macro perspective, online education is seeing strong tailwinds given an easier engagement model vs. in-person tutoring centers as well as COVID-related shifts towards socially distant education models. This has driven strong performance YTD as illustrated below. Although the stock has come down quite a bit from August highs, it is still at a material premium to the IPO price in Q4 2019.
The company generates revenues from two core segments: online education which accounts for 66% of revenues and digital advertising which accounts for 33% of revenues. Online education specifically consists of online courses and online education tools (dictionary/notebook) with a focus on K-12 and a growing platform focused on continuing education for adults.
A unique technology offering that Youdao has is the Smart Pen offering.
The global system of preparing people to make meaningful contributions to society while enjoying economic safety does not work. What if we just started from zero and remade education?
What if the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on education isn’t about new modes of instruction, but instead is the realization that our current system is on a path without a relevant destination?
Every industry clamors for the arrival of a “new normal.” And yet, we would argue that getting back to a “new normal” is the absolute wrong aspiration. After all, normal in terms of global education was pretty dismal in many parts of the pre-Covid-19 world.

In a Monday letter to parents and guardians, chief superintendent Robert Martin said the decision was made to ensure consistency in instruction and learning.
“We understand that this plan is very different than what we had shared in August…we maintain that our schools are safe and in-person learning is going to provide the most complete learning experience for our students,” Martin wrote.
Quarterly changes three more times throughout the school year could have led to students having a different teacher two or three times, which could be disruptive to learning, Cusack said.
“We didn’t feel that was in the best interest,” said Cusack. There are approximately 30,000 students learning in classrooms throughout the division, and an extra 200 teachers have been hired at a cost of approximately $19 million – paid for in part by the federal safe restart funding of $15.6 million.

Oct. 5 (UPI) — Now is the time to reimagine education around the world to make it more equitable for everyone, several United Nations agencies and their partners said in a joint statement Monday celebrating World Teachers’ Day.
While the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated inequities, the statement said teachers have led the way in innovation and creativity to serve students despite the limitations.
“In this crisis, teachers have shown, as they have done so often, great leadership and innovation in ensuring that #LearningNeverStops, that no learner is left behind,” said the statement from Audrey Azoulay of UNESCO, Guy Ryder of the International Labor Organization, Henrietta H. Fore of UNICEF and David Edwards of Education International.
The statement said teachers have “individually and collectively” worked to find solutions and create environments where students could learn safely during the pandemic.
“Their role advising on school reopening plans and supporting students with the
