Notations On Our World: Some Final Thoughts on #2015

As we have been working away throughout the #Outsider network, one of the key highlights of the year we commented on was +COP21.     We recently received this during our daily Social Media Curation and Review and wanted to feature this which we look forward to commenting on in the New Year throughout the Network:   

Are you interested in the historic agreement that was adopted among 195 countries at COP21 this weekend? You can read the document here!

Beyond @COP21 and the on-going deliberations on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, there is also an interesting development in California which we hope to report and comment on.   Charter Schools are a reality that have become part of the effort to reform schools.       However, it was of interest that one of the largest School Districts, Anaheim Union in Orange County, has issued a call to halt further approvals of Charter Schools as it is slated to proliferate.     We found it especialy striking that some 1320 Schools are now operating in California with some 581,000 Students with 158,000 students on the waiting list.     32 schools have closed even though 80 have opened.   We will be on the prowl for it for 2015.

We look forward to being of continued service in 2016.

Happy New Year.
