The argument goes that the pay gap only exists because of women’s ‘choices’ of work type, hours, and child related career breaks, effectively making it a myth.

If a student has access to a great school, Khan Academy can supercharge it. It should help a well-resourced school, and if you don’t have that, then Khan Academy can have even a bigger impact. But I don’t see it as replacing the actual schools… we want to empower teachers and fill in the gaps.

I am a hands-on mother, so I take long gaps between films.

The scientific approach to the phenomenon of human nature enables us to be ignorant without bieng frightened, and without, therefore, having to invent all sorts of wierd theories to explain away our gaps in knowledge.
