Elon Musk wants to open schools and universities

Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, wants to establish his own university in Austin, Texas, USA. But before that he wants to build a school and for this purpose he has also started taking various initiatives. He will not have any tuition fee in this school and university. This information was given in a report by the US media Bloomberg.

Elon Musk has already given $100 million to a charity to open the school. Bloomberg learned about this donation from the tax documents of the money given to the related charity. Initially, an elementary school will be opened with the money given by Elon Musk. Later, high schools and universities will be established in stages. The school established with the money given by Elon Musk will initially take 50 students. These students will be taught STEM subjects or related subjects including science, technology, medicine and mathematics. STEM subjects refer to Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Technology and Engineering, Mathematics, Information and Communication Technology, Computer Science, Economics and Geography.

According to the tax return, the name of the charity is The Foundation. The charity seeks to expand its activities from schools to creating a university dedicated to education at the highest level. The document also states that the Elon Musk-funded university will soon apply for accreditation to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the regulatory body.

The document also revealed that initially the school plans to charge no tuition fees. However, even if the tuition fee is introduced, the students will be given the necessary scholarships or bursaries.

Elon Musk has expressed interest in opening educational institutions before. In 2012, he started a private school called 'Ad Astra'. The school was opened for the children of the employees of the establishments owned by him. Elon said about the school, Ad Astra has no grades, rather the school gives the highest importance to the skills and abilities of the students.
