The Next Big Planetary Wave

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

The world is slowly opening its eyes.

It’s becoming more and more clear that things have to change. The ideals we held as perfect and necessary are now looking bleak. And we have a larger society with more and more educated people in it. This is power in the hands of those willing to make a real impact. And that power is further extended by the work of transition.

It’s the name of Sujit Choudhry who leads the world and within the field of transition as in our prior example. Transition is not as simple as it sounds however. Transition is not only going from one condition to another. It also means world powers and their development. This type of development and growth is unique however.

What is required is a determined set of work done in the field of comparative law.

A Closer Look At The World’s Nations

Each nation has a developed or developing group of ideals that holds those same nations accountable. For example, many nations implement a constitution and in order to govern how their governments grow, act or behave. This lets us get a better look at what a constitution truly is and how the identity of a country results from it.

But when comparative constitutional law is brought into the picture, what we see instead is a practice the leads any developing nation into a better standing as a world power. This is the work that Sujit Choudhry has done best. For more of Sujit, check on sujitchoudhry.com.  The work history is extensive and solely due to a life-long practice and a commitment to education.

Where Humanity Has Come Up Short

But you might wonder why any of this is even necessary.

The fact is, humanity remains standing and in a place of growth. But it’s short of its intended goal with government and social behavior in whole. Segregation continues to exist. Those who have different sexual preferences are still looked upon with hatred and have difficult lives that they live.

Important article about Sujit here.

This is true and clear in our society today as it was in the past. Because we’ve grown with a central message that none of these are currently the state of things, it’s only prevalent that we acknowledge them now and to hold ourselves accountable. So let us thank Sujit Choudhry for making that all possible for our modern world and times.  Read this recently written article of Sujit on activistpsot.com.

Sujit Choudhry on Center for Constitutional Transitions

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

Sujit Choudhry indicates in an interview with CEOCFO Magazine that the center for constitutional transitions generates and mobilizes knowledge in support of the constitution. The organization concentrates on assembling and leading international networks of experts who produce evidence based on policy options for making decisions. Partnering with a global network of multilateral organizations and NGOs, they have worked with more than 50 experts from 25 countries. Sujit Choudhry founded the organization due to the significant number of questions that arise during transition of the constitution. The issues raised were once which there was outdated or incomplete or non-existing information. Since lack of adequate information hinders the effectiveness of constitutional advice, the organization was formed to bridge such gaps.

Sujit Choudhry told the magazine that as an immigrant with law degrees in three countries, he navigated new and legal political environments during his life. Since every country practices different issues, stakeholders and histories, the knowledge he acquired in law have enabled him to succeed. As a scholar in comparative constitutional law, Sujit Choudhry notes that the world is facing the greatest global challenge since second war. The problem on liberal democratic constitutionalism arose from the puncture of the myth of American exceptionalism. The situation in America is similar to what happened in constitutional democracies under stress in the world. He advised that it is crucial for America to learn from the success and failures of other nations.

When asked to share his challenges and rewards while working with people of different culture, Choudhry noted that listening and being responsive on the ground is important. His vision over time has been not to let the perfect be the enemy of the good. He noted that the country needs organizations that host the most important constitutional case laws from around the world.

Eva Moskowitz’s ‘Ed Institute’ aims to help teachers improve their schools

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

When Eva Moskowitz founded Success Academy in New York City, her goal was to improve the education for as many children in the city as she could. Not just any children, however, but predominantly low-income children of color.

 

Children who do not usually get the same educational opportunities as the more affluent ones do.

 

Fast forward 11 years and Eva Moskowitz and her Success Academy has not only opened 41 exceptional charter schools in New York City, she and her teachers are currently educating more than 14,000 children. Three more schools will be opened in the city in the next year.

 

They are also educating them to such a high level, Success Academy has just received the Broad Prize for being the best charter network in the country when it comes to exceptional academic achievements.

 

The Broad Prize comes with an award of $250,000. An award Eva Moskowitz says Success Academy will now use to create a new program for their high schools students to help them prepare for university.

 

But the mission of Eva Moskowitz is not just to improve the education of New York children. She also believes every child around America should have the same opportunities.

 

So, this month, she announced a new program called ‘Ed Institute’.

 

The program has been set up to help teachers in other charter schools around the country achieve the same exceptional results by offering them the Success Academy curriculum, as well as the educational tools and resources they use and their teaching methods.

 

All of this is being offered to them free of charge by Eva Moskowitz and Success Academy, as they really believe any teacher, any school and any child can benefit from their methods.

 

To promote Ed Institute, Moskowitz also sent the Success Academy’s reading lessons to 15,000 school officials around the country, so they too could see what the Academy is doing and why they are so successful.
