Reed commented on Compassion Education Corps

This is an inspiring proposal and it appears to build off the Charter for Compassion's organizational strengths--respecting and supporting compassionate action in situ -- but being able to bring to bear expertise and experience from the wider Charter network. In thinking about the challenge "how best to work with locals to address education needs," I think that continuing to develop a locally driven network while making the larger web of connections *more responsive* is key. I would hope that one aspect that you would focus on with xocial and other technology partners is how to weave this web of connectivity in a way that continues to honor the local students and the primary drivers of the change they need. As you reference Freire, the importance of keeping the balance of power with the local communities is key to lasting and effective change.
