Jeff Bezos v. Education

On June 15 2017 Jeff Bezos twitted his request for ideas:







I quickly sent my response:


I offered several project - all in education (the projects offered there later were migrated to my main blog: www.Cognisity.How).


One project was designated specifically to opening a school – a special kind of school:


Fearing that Mr. Bezos does not have time to read, some time later, on may 12. 2018, I made a short video:


Of course, I never had any feedback from Mr. Bezos, or his associates.

BTW, Mr. Bezos, all my projects remain heavily actual/current/present/contemporary – in case you are interested in making real difference in education.

Other oligarchs are also welcome:


Dr. Valentin Voroshilov


P.S. another post about Bezos – not related to education:
