On September 28, I became one of the first three official “Solvers” in the Learn Pillar of MIT’s Solve Initiative.  What does that mean?  Well, basically it means the judges think this is a good idea and worthy of further study, which is what I am going to do for the next several months.  I’ll describe my plans, and make updates in another blog post.  Here, I am opening it up to hear from as many people as I can. I invite you to comment here.  Let me know what you think of my idea to connect mentor teachers with students around the world, to help children who have been displaced from their homes and schools to continue their education independently, so they can have an easier transition to their new life settings when they reach a more permanent place.
