Give us $5 billion and we will help educate the world for a post-pandemic recovery

An ambitious $5 billion funding drive to rebuild education networks across 87 hard hit countries is to launch next year as promoters hope to reverse the damage wrought by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is seeking massive funds to assist countries to transform education for hundreds of millions of pupils in the face of an anticipated budgetary squeeze as a result of the predicted global recession.

Alice Albright, the chief executive of the GPE, told The National that a three-point plan could reverse not only the damage of the pandemic but also the growing problem of hundreds of millions of children losing out on schooling. “One is to help countries invest in distance learning, two is to help train more teachers and three is to help countries reopen schools safely,” she said. “We are campaigning to get children back into school because one of the things

Financial Education Should Be Part Of The Recovery From The COVID-19 Recession. This Is Why.

The US Department of the Treasury recently issued the new National Strategy for Financial literacy. This is much needed, in particular in a time of crisis and a good part of the report is devoted to how to help people in these difficult times and the critical role of financial education.

Since the start of the crisis, one thing has been notably absent: the voices of those who say financial education is futile and a waste of time.  The long lines at food banks stand as a painful reminder of how little financial resilience many American families had and how daunting it is to manage our finances during a pandemic. It is during a storm that sailing lessons show their worth, and it is becoming painfully obvious that knowing a thing or two about financial literacy is essential—not simply to navigate our finances but to survive

The Power Line Show, Ep 216: The Recovery of Family Life, with Scott Yenor

We’re delighted to bring Scott Yenor to the show this week to discuss his important new book, The Recovery of Family Life: Exposing the Limits of Modern Ideologies, which is being officially released tomorrow from Baylor University Press. Unlike many other fine books on the family today that rely chiefly on social science, Scott brings his immense learning in political philosophy to bear on family questions, from Plato and Aristotle through to de Tocqueville—and even Russian novels.

Yenor takes us through a grand tour of the “rolling revolution” wrought by the ideologies of sexual liberation and unlimited individual autonomy over recent decades, which has led to, among other things, the degradation of love, and a civilization-threatening collapse in the birth rate. Scott has some thoughts on what policy makers can do to reinforce strong family life.

Our conversation ranges widely over the controversies Scott has had to weather on campus

What Can We Learn From Louisville About Equitable Economic Recovery?

Late in 2019, I spent two days in strategic conversations between civic, workforce and industry leaders in Denver. We talked about the growing demands of various industry sectors across the city — and the education and training solutions available to learners in all stages of their careers. Denver is not unlike most major cities — where the demands of the labor market are mismatched with the talent available. Economic development, corporate and civic leaders here are looking for solutions that embody partnership, collaboration and innovation. As we grapple with the  ramifications of not just skill and equity gaps, but seemingly endemic unemployment, the need for creative, strategic workforce solutions is paramount.
