Courageous individuals can make a difference and change the world. Arguably, Dec. 1, 1955, marks the day that the civil rights movement in the United States began.
K-12 education is not Georgia Tech’s primary mission, but it is still a vital part of the educational ecosystem and the pipeline that brings students to Georgia Tech.
In my previous blog, I addressed the concern that the United States is adrift without a science policy to secure our future, while China seems to be quickly adopting our successful research university model. But that isn’t the end of the story. The fact that the Chinese can innovate on existing ideas so well tells me that it is only a matter of (short) time before they begin to drive the creative process.
It behooves academia, government, and industry to quickly settle on a stable policy that will allow us to get back to the business we do best: educating the best engineers and scientists, and producing the seeds of innovation that drive the technological markets of the future.”
Believe and Achieve: A message to underrepresented minorities, women, and all of us who are different
To think that all is fine and that discrimination, bias, and bigotry are relics of the past is to live in a fantasy, or certainly a different world from the one I live in.
