THE TOP 10 Greenest Univeristies | Sierra Club

THE TOP 10 | Sierra Club:

The top 10 greenest universities/colleges.

California and the West coast do very well in this list.

This is an interesting mix of doing green things and sustainability-types of education.

Very interesting. There's a couple on the list that you might not expect.

In terms of the degree programs, it would be interesting to know how the graduates match up with the available jobs.

Robin Williams' son and San Quentin inmate teach finance behind bars - Aug. 4, 2015

Robin Williams' son and San Quentin inmate teach finance behind bars - Aug. 4, 2015:

Literacy and life skills for prisoners.

This is especially important for the people to be successful when reintegrating back into society.

As we rethink how many people we have in prison and how long we keep them there, the skill sets of those returning is critical to moving them from being a burden of the state, to be a successful contributor to the economy, paying taxes, etc.

We still miss that mad man Robin Williams. But it is kinda cool what his son is doing to move on.

!The power of education, one of the great equalizers of our lifetime.! (See the Patent Primer 3.0 by Hall and Hinkelman.)
