VEA channel interview of Lee with a program called ‘El Analista’ en July 16th, 2016 & its basic contents (in English)

The original VEA canal interview took place at 8 30 in the morning of July 16th, 2016 for 30 minutes (+extra 4.6 minutes of the USL original pilot study summary video from Dongchan Lee) was aired in the morning of July 17th nationwide. Due to the video length restrictions, we split up the video to 3 parts (because the VEA canal attached the 4.6 minute USL pilot study introduction video at the end of the interview). So we put these 3 parts as on a playlist so that the viewers can see the entire video continuously.


VEA Canal ‘El Analista’ interview: part 1 (15 minutes)

  • The origin of USL
  • In the international school math standard, the average school math in Guatemala (especially for the primary schools) is F and the progress is exceedingly slow.
  • What the 1 standard deviation boost of the national school math average (from the current national average of F to about the national average of C of Chile, Uruguay and Mexico) means to Guatemala in very short years of 2-4 years instead of 50-100 years.
  • This about 1 Standard Deviation of national math average boost is roughly equivalent to boost the national math grade levels by 3-4 years in Guatemala (about 2 grades boost in the average OECD countries).
  • USL operations will be 100% based on the internet and tablet-based education and some motivations why.
  • How Lee will be able to bring the radical and efficient 100% tablet-internet-based education infrastructure reforms in Guatemala in just 2-4 years (instead of decades) if there are the national government supports and collaborations with the excuse of the USL1 (which is equivalent to boost the national school math average by 3-4 years in Guatemala and most of the Latin American countries).
  • Debunking the typical myths about boosting the national economy by raising the average school years.


VEA Canal ‘El Analista’ interview: part 2 (15 minutes)

  • How to reduce the national level of math poverty and the financial poverty by about 60-70% very quickly at the same time using USL1.
  • How to make the USL1 to be implemented, what do we need to do? 1) The direct collaborations and supports from the Guatemalan national government and Ministry of Education of Guatemala; 2) In case the national government doesn’t take action early enough in 2016 for USL1, then the national media of communication need to make the USL1 efforts known by publicities so that Lee can make public noises in other countries so that he can return to Guatemala later (next year or so) to put the pressures on the national government and Mineduc to embrace this revolution taking place in math education efficiency and the modernized education infrastructure nationwide.
  • The general severe inefficiency of the national Ministry of Education of Guatemala and why and how to overcome this.
  • The suggestions of the interviewer (Hugo Rolando Lopez) of VEA canal to the president and the minister of Education of Guatemala to invite Dongchan Lee to open the discussions and to explore the collaborations together.


VEA Canal ‘El Analista’ interview: part 3 (6.5 minutes)

  • For more details about USL and USL1, visit
  • Lee emphasizes the national school math average as the most powerful factor for the economic growths for most of the countries in the world.


NOTE: For those who are not Guatemalans or cannot listen to Spanish, my suggestion to you is to focus on just the Part 1 and 2 because Part 2 is more specifically about the criticisms and what need to be done more politically here in Guatemala to make the government embrace the USL1.


The following letter grade classifications are meant to be rule of thumb as the letter grades are relative; however, the overall patterns depend on where to fix A and the widths of the letter grades descending will change very little overall.

For the countries where the national math average in the international standards are around the following categories, I will focus on the initial attentions to the following.

  • around A or A- (Germany, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Cuba, etc.)
  • B to B+ (typically the USA or the already developed countries or most OECD countries)
  • around C to C+ (such as Chile, Uruguay, Mexico, or some math-poor states of the USA such as Alabama, New Mexico, DC, California, etc.)
  • around D (for countries like Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador, Argentina, etc.)
  • around F (for Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Paraguay, etc.)

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.
