More boys are enrolled in kindergarten than girls, but fewer boys will graduate from high school. What happens in the years between to keep boys from being successful in school? Are our boys failing -- or are we failing our boys?

Plutocrats at Work: How Big Philanthropy Undermines Democracy | Dissent Magazine

Plutocrats at Work: How Big Philanthropy Undermines Democracy | Dissent Magazine | digital divide information | Scoop.it

by Joanne Barkan

 

"One hundred years later, big philanthropy still aims to solve the world’s problems—with foundation trustees deciding what is a problem and how to fix it. They may act with good intentions, but they define “good.” The arrangement remains thoroughly plutocratic: it is the exercise of wealth-derived power in the public sphere with minimal democratic controls and civic obligations. Controls and obligations include filing an annual IRS form and (since 1969) paying an annual excise tax of up to 2 percent on net investment income. There are regulations against self-dealing, lobbying (although “educating” lawmakers is legal), and supporting candidates for public office. In reality, the limits on political activity barely function now: loopholes, indirect support for groups that do political work, and scant resources for regulators have crippled oversight."

Bridging the social digital divide.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Many people are left out of the conversations. The press thinks that those who listen to it have the answers. They look into their own mirror.

y focusing on the wrong things we are leaving entire segments of people out of the conversation because they don’t know the tools. They don’t know the language.

The people being left out matter. These segments are filled with brilliant people who have a lot of knowledge to pass down to younger generations. The primary struggle is they don’t know the tools and they aren’t speaking in the same social 140, micro byte language of some of their younger counterparts.

 

 

Yet, we all have much we can learn from these people who are being left out. They can have much value, knowledge and inspiration to add to our lives and business. We must find a way to inspire them to engage and participate in a meaningful way that is comfortable to them. While at the same time we must continue to help internal and external constituents evolve, grow and learn about the new communication channels, when and how it makes sense for them and for the business.

Many social bloggers write about what to say, do, tweet, post, and pin. There are self-proclaimed experts writing articles on what words we should and shouldn’t use when talking about business, marketing, technology, social media.
