Our priorities

Some of our current priorities among many can be summarized as follows:

  1. To run more rigorous primarily online-based USL pilot studies for USL 0.25, 0.5, and 1.0 with cities, states, and national governments and MOEs or DOEs first in English-speaking countries under the supervision of the UN to use the further data to push the global agenda that USL1 is aiming to resolve. We´ll try to collect at least 10,000-50,000 of new student participations hopefully from various countries in 2015.
  2. Once the new results for USL 0.5, 1.0 emerge, then we will directly collaborate with various state or national governments to create global networks of Social Enterprises (UGNSE 1.0: USL Global Network of Social Enterprise version 1) where each participating states and nations not only enjoy the massive growths in their human capital that will transform their regions forever, but also they have to commit to contribute to various global crises as summarized in our website so that we can quickly move on to the next stage of human history.
  3. Cost-Benefit Analysis of USL 0.5 or 1.0 vs. the BAU (Business As Usual) or Education As Usual. We are currently preparing various documents to convince and persuade the various governments, but due to the overwhelming scopes of work, we are currently releasing the Executive Summaries first and will start releasing detailed Business Plans or proposals to specific governments, the UN, NGOs, investors, etc., as the specific questions are raised.
  4. To establish a binding international treaty via the UN called URF 1.0 to transform our world very rapidly. The protocols will be set up in such a way that not only the massive progresses in education, economy and population are possible, but also the unprecedented levels of environmental and natural resource protections will be launched as well as the global social equities.
  5. For the global causes, the most immediate impacts will be on the two of the mega UN projects: POST-2015´ SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), SE4All (Sustainable Energy For All).
  6. The subsidiary targets to these will be Education For All from UNESCO and to empower the girl education, starting with the 2 of the poorest regions in the world, i.e. Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, giving the top priorities to the girl education over boy education first.
  7. Due to the massive economic growth potentials, if we can collaborate with the UN and World Bank in near future, we try to coordinate so that their sustainability projects´ annual budgets at least double over the next 10 years or so. Currently their annual operation costs are about 0.1% of the world GDP for each, but USL1 will make them double to the current level in Real GDP term, not in nominal GDP term. This means that all the POST-2015 and SE4All, etc., can be achieved at least twice faster than the current timespans.
  8. The next phase naturally as USL1 evolve organically, our main targets are to resolve all the top 5 +2 toughest global challenges or crises by 2035-2040 not 2100.
  9. If most parts of the world embrace USL1 and if our treaty is well adhered to boost the non-material based economic growth with the circular economy as well as the protection of the environment is maximized, then USL2 will be released and step by step to USL 6+.
  10. Currently, we will reserve USL 1.5 as the backup plan in case the world crises deepen faster than now. USL 1.5 will be designed to boost the global national school math and science average by 3 years instead of 2 years. For math, this means that to advance the national average school math skills roughly the 2/3 difference between the top performing countries and the rock bottom performing countries, which normally may take roughly a century, but USL 1.5 will make it happen in less than 5 years.

current focus on MMU x.x series

MMU1: just to uplift the math poorest half average to the math top half average, which normally would take at least 50-100 years in the average OECD nations with almost no exceptions at least according to the PISA and TIMSS math rsults 1995-2015 (and you should know that this is a revolution, not some sort of useless reforms that have been going on in the entire developed OECD nations). To reduce the hyper-skepticism, my initial target may be reducing the math poverty by 20-30% and raising the proficiency in similar manner, which still would normally take at least 30-50+ years in at least 90% of the developed countries, their states or big cities. Current focus is on the MMU1 series as the warm-up exercises as forms of pilot studies to demonstrate the math EDU revolution is not only possible in spite of the hyper-bureaucracy of the EDU establishments that simply would not any of the most breakthrough innovations in EDU and will instead keep on playing with the furitless, fancy toys of the math EDU apps and technology.

The Fundamental Premises Of USL1 And USL

USL will use the colossal cognitive capital potentials of STEM education (especially Math at the moment), because USL can make the learning 10-50 times faster and more effective than the Business As Usual typically, to trigger the equally colossal gains in the socio-economy in exchange of their willingness of the participating governments - under a new UN-led treaty hopefully - to collectively contribute the reasonable ratios of the expected surplus gains in their economies to resolve the top global crises. Each of the governments will mostly focus on resolving their crises of course, but they have to contribute to the world communities to prosper with the sustainable growths together not at the exclusion of half of the world that is poverty-stricken. USL 1 will be the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to collectively contribute the effectively gained, USL1.0-induced surplus economy (in a sustainable manner) to resolve the most serious global crises (for all governments and the UN) based on the 5UE principles: to transition towards the resource-based, renewable energy-based, sustainable global environment and the circular economy, to help end the poverty much faster than without, while making the average people learn math and science faster and easier than prodigies. As the original USL is too fast and too disruptive (as it can literally make average people learn math and science 1,000%-50,000% times faster) to transform and people are too skeptical, we are currently focusing on only 2-5% and up to 10% at most of its capacity called USL 0.25-0.5-1.0 for the state and national governments as well as the UN.

USL1 Global Movements With Governments: 3 Steps & 3-Tier Economic Gains

STEP 1) Math Education Reform USL 0.25 at the city and USL 0.5 at the state government levels (advancing their regional average math skill levels by half a year, which normally takes 10-30 years to most of the OECD countries, in just 2-3 years). STEP 2) Math Education Reform USL 0.5 at the state government levels (advancing their regional average math skill levels by 1 year or more, which normally takes 2-5 decades to most of the OECD countries, in just 2-4 years). STEP 3) Math Education Reform USL 1 at the national government & the UN treaty levels (advancing their regional average math skill levels by 2 years or more, which (almost) never happened to virtuallly all of the OECD member countries, in just 2-5 years). For each of the following step, we will try to create local, regional, or national Social Enterprise for each government - if they are willing as the gains are tremendous potentially - to share the profits together. So the governments will have the 3-layered benefits: ... 1) USL 0.x will enrich not only the math education that helps each USL x participating regions, 2) but also to prosper together as Social Enterprise board members of the corresponding regions. 3) once the UN gets involved, then the certain portions of the massive surpluses to their local or regional economies will be properly redistributed for the global social, energy, environmental, equality and poverty causes.
