In the course of speed dating some 15 of us end up congregating under the banner of education. I have thus taken the liberty of splintering off a group focusing on seeking a new paradigm of education for the disadvantaged and disabled youths. In New York City some minority groups end up poorly educated with only about 1/3 of the high school graduates being college ready in English and less than 10% in math. There are 200,000 students having learning disabilities that put them on individualized education programs, costing the city many billions of dollars a year. Many of the disadvantaged and disabled youths end up under state support after their schooling. I am convinced that many of these youths do have innate intelligence and abilities that, with proper guidance, can lead to a more productive life than the marginal existence they are relegated to. Hence, I am back in school in search of a solution. One element of any solution would lie in the motivation of the students and their families towards building a collective voice for change. Hopefully Gov 3.0 would broaden my skill set to help these youths through accentuated community actions.

The clock is wrong. I posted my comment at 6:34am and it showed up as 3:34am. Is there a way to set the clock?

A small group of us have selected the topic of "Crowd Law"--what we're using as shorthand to talk about crowd-based innovations that produce more participatory and collaborative legislative and regulatory processes. Check us out on Twitter at @CrowdLawBlog, and hopefully, eventually at www.crowdlaw.org.
