Our algorithm smashes horizontally through an expanding constellation of best practice literature released by 1000-odd standard setting organizations worldwide every day. These organizations throw off the better part of 10,000 titles relevant to the safety and sustainability agenda of education communities. Many of these titles compete with proposals in the same, or in a similar domain as best practice titles produced by cash-rich insiders working the levers of government. Those best practice titles are effectively public law — “market-making”, if you will.
This week’s topics are doing sessions (or “mark up” sessions in the parlance of functionaries on the Washington D.C. policy grid). “Administrivia” is characteristic of the standardization domain; where an outsized measure of resources are spent on process and procedure. During our markup sessions we assume policy objectives are established (Safer-Simpler-Lower-Cost, Longer-Lasting). Because we necessarily get into the weeds we usually have to schedule a separate time slot to hammer away over ZOOM.

*Not all public consultation relevant to education community spaces appear in “ANSI Standards Action”. Many best practice standards reside in consortia and open-source platforms; particularly ICT and IoT standards. In many economic spaces, privately-developed consensus products compete with local, state and federal legislative proposals.
