Reclaiming The American Dream VI: The (Other) Lessons of Khan Academy

Howard Husock
This article is more than 6 years old.

To say that Khan Academy has important lessons to offer is to state the obvious. The Mountain View-based internet teaching institution—which has grown from founder Salman Khan’s individualized YouTube math lessons for his 7th grade niece to a worldwide phenomenon—offers thousands of free, plain-spoken online courses, from algebra to biology. But there are even broader lessons to be taken from the astounding success of Sal Khan, winner of the Manhattan Institute’s $100,000 2014 William E. Simon Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Social Entrepreneurship. Indeed, the lessons extend well beyond education

遗憾的是,随着乌拉圭在当地时间周六(6月28日)被哥伦比亚淘汰出局,本届世界杯决赛将不再是巴西和乌拉圭之间的再次对话。如果巴西杀入7月13日的决赛,对手将可能是墨西哥、荷兰、哥斯达黎加、希腊、美国、比利时、阿根廷和瑞士中的一支(译注:1/8决赛中,墨西哥与希腊分别不敌荷兰与哥斯达黎加,憾别世界杯)。

2005年初,斯通和其联合创始人爱丽莎卡玛赫特和朱瑞德斯贾丁斯发现,使用博客的女性规模庞大,但主流媒体却很少会引用她们的文章。于是,三人决定召开一次草根会议,并吸引了谷歌和雅虎(Yahoo)等赞助商。门票很快销售一空,不久,她们便成立了BlogHer.com。这个博客发布平台把撰写博客变成了许多女性可以用来赚钱的一项业务——2009年至2012年期间,这家公司向5,000名博主支付了超过2,500万美元。目前,这个平台的用户已经超过9,200万人。

And, this year, Star Wars found its way onto the list as well, with ‘starwars’ claiming the 16th spot.

The story of Khan Academy’s start and growth is dramatic. Sal Khan, New Orleans-born and MIT-educated, was working in the finance industry as a hedge fund analyst when, in 2004, he learned that his niece, Nadia, needed help with algebra. He began sending her his own clear, step-by-step illustrated lectures (Khan himself did not appear) via YouTube. That allowed other web users to use the same lessons. The teaching of Khan—a complete outsider to education or education reform—went viral, ultimately catching the eye of Bill Gates, whom Khan learned was helping his own children with lessons first meant for Nadia. Khan eventually attracted $15 million-plus in philanthropic support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Google , venture capitalist John Doerr, and others accustomed to the idea that radical newcomers might be worth investing in. Such funding allowed Khan to give up his day job and start Khan Academy, with a forthright, undeniably ambitious goal: a free world-class education, for anyone, anywhere.

Banks just cannot afford to keep up. At Goldman Sachs, for example, net revenues have dropped about a third since 2009, beaten down by structural shifts in trading and new rules crimping risk-taking. The bank tries to keep its pay ratio stable, so that means smaller total packages for the typical employee.

No. One way it could play out: after a tentative start involving lots of trading stops, bitcoin futures will slowly begin to attract institutional money.
