    Posting it here is obviously important, but maybe efforts in getting it into his hands would be even more important.

      I know of no reason to believe that Gates would pay any attention to anything about education that did not come through the education folks in his foundation.  Knowing what I do about who some of those have been, I think my time is better spent targeting his audiences.
