I’ve been cited in several stories about Jeff Bezos’ plans to develop a chain of Montessori-inspired preschools as his first big foray into educational philanthropy:
- “What’s Motivating Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ Early-Childhood Ed. Approach?” in Education Week
- “Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ Ambitious Pre-K Move Sparks Wary Reactions” also in Education Week
- Larry Cuban also republished my article on the Bezos news on his website
An observation: it is fascinating how the two Ed Week articles are set up to infer that I am just making stuff up about the future of Bezos’ philanthropy, according to one male investment analyst quoted in both. (This individual called me "unhinged" on Twitter.) His speculations, I guess, are The Real Things. This very gendered framework happens all the time. Watch for it.
