What We're Reading | June 15, 2012

June 15, 2012 by George W. Bush Presidential Center

Burma’s Aung San Suu Kyi arrived in Geneva  Wednesday, setting foot in Europe for the first time in decades. Stops in Norway, Ireland, England, and France are also scheduled for Suu Kyi. The trip comes amidst an outbreak of violence in western Burma between Arakan Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims, who the UN says are among the world’s most persecuted minorities. (The Telegraph/Foreign Policy) The International AIDS Conference will convene this July in Washington, DC, where it was last held 25 years ago.  Experts are expected to focus on vast improvements seen in treatment and prevention since the 1987 conference, and will also call for “financial resources, innovation, political will, an overall strengthening of health systems, fighting stigma, and greater ownership by all countries of HIV/AIDS efforts within their borders.” (Blog.AIDS.gov, Anthony S. Fauci) Several of the fellows at Bush Center have conducted work pertaining to charter schools and last week shared the idea of coupling low performing schools with charter schools. In Columbus, Ohio, Columbus City Schools have proposed a plan that would share local property tax money with some charter schools. More specifically, high-performing charters would partner with other low-performing district schools. (Education Week, Bill Bush)
