Ted should have their own private school
Ted already has online education and cool talks, why not try to build a public facility and create its own awesome curricula? It'll be Ted's own private school in Silicon Valley.
I figured the best way to improve public education imo, is not to take part in the public education system, but create a new system to set a good example. So why can't Ted do this? They already have http://ed.ted.com, you can say, ted is already sort of like a school, just in the under-development phase.
