Bill Gates on mosquitos, malaria and education

In this video, Bill Gates share about 2 problems that he is currently passionate about solving:
1. How do you stop a deadly disease that is spread by mosquitoes?
2. How do you make a teacher great?

Interesting Notes:

  1. More money put into baldness drug development than malaria as the rich man are bald
  2. Malaria control requires skills from all areas (math, computing, pharma, etc.)
  3. If US had top tier teachers, gap between US & Asia in Math & Sci would go away in 2 years
  4. Masters degree doesn’t correlate with teaching quality, Past performance does
  5. Slightly better teachers leave the system, not the lousy teachers
  6. Check out KIPP teaching styles through the book “Work Hard Be Nice”
