20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

4.1 lifelong values development - flow with csik

abed would say common sense things- eg children particularly learn most from those they feel love them most - and that would explain why abed demanded his co-workers valued paulo freire's action learning; - the formal flow theory for thos anericans groove to is by professor csik ..

however before we get to pedagogies in 1972 abed faced a more pratcical problem- having built a meta-village for 100000 refugees he found about 5 village mothers were starving to death a week , and practically no village women had jobs- so training some village mothers in rice production and a few vilage mothers to look after infants from 10 families while the other mothers grew food was the first adult learning priority - and so bracs fieldforce of experienced village trainers grew to over 100000 over next 50 years

================================ hg wells civilisation is race between education and catastrophe

appendix - this may only make sense to mathematicians but since maths unique ability is system mapping it amazes me how few people seem to see that education systems not economics are number 1 explainer of sustainble human let alone national development - anyone got ideas on how to explain this

 being from cambridge damtp - i tend to believe every sustainability crisis is part of the world's biggest maths error - because if there is any purpose mathematicians serve it is designing systems which exponentially sustain or collapse

but i am aware that the greatest maths guy to have strolled the planet john von neumann developed a final lecxture series with yale on how understanding human and machine brains needed to become 2 sides of the same coin if exinction is not to be what we do with the 21st c

this is to say you cant ignore friendships with coaches of emotional intel or even loveq skills if you want maths you map ro do global good

and this applies whether you see yourself as a systems profssion in g1 finance g2 agricultual food/water security 3 health 4 education...

and sadly western educators have spent the first 3 decades of virtual learning tools denying this until a virus requires rexamine everything you ever taught about relations between top-dow and bottom systems

in heavily examined western schools, there are both missing processes - eg kids learn a lot given spaces to teach each other; eg2 teamwork- although team skills have increased exponentially research since 1984 (2025 report's 37th year since publication) most western schools dont support this - if you have counter examples that are scalable delighted to post them; meanwhile we'll use 4.1 lifelong learn and teach to post some clues even though we would love each age group to experience them

at least 3 generations of my diaspora scot family have spent most of our lives trying to recreate cultural fusion of understanding as you go from east to west across the old world - there is good reason for thing smith and watt would have been dismayed by how mainly london led white empires to divide and conquer asia through colonisation- so most smithian scholars as well as the economist 1843-1990 sought to positively remediate trade and human advancement relationships between two thirds of humans who are asian an 13% whose ethnicity is white empires 

appendi 2x- parenting a child born valentines day 1997 in city of hate wash dc region

back when my daughter was 9 in a us catholic school i picked up her social studies textbook- never has any book so deeply offended me it was asking her to learn by heart definitions which were opposite to many generations of my families experiences as mediators and missionaries- apart from taking her out of the school what could i do- my wife's catholic but i am just a maths guy so it took me some time to find out that Jesuit and Franciscan catholics have extremely different community engagement approaches and us catholic education systems are dominated by jesuits 

a surprising bonus from starting 15 trips to bangladesh xmas 2007 was to find both of the greatest women empowerment experiments brac, grameen- saw paulo friere franscican pedagogy of the oppresed as the dna of every partnership they built

however i didn'r actively understand why this was critical to last mil health service transformation until jim kim came to the world bank and started spilling the beans

in 2015 i went to the vaticna twice- my question can we survey if even one catholic university in usa will commit to changing from the rich endowment policies of jesuits to something aligned to the pope cpo-launching the sdgs

i was sort of told good luck - we wish that change could happen-but from the start of biden-obama we have been using every polite channel we can to ask that and been told that government in us cannot be seen to question religious schools on cultural studies- well thats quite a catch 22-
