Bill Gates to chat education on PBS in first TED Talk made for TV

Word comes by way of The Wrap that PBS is slated to air the very first TED Talk produced for TV on April 16th, and it'll feature Bill Gates, to boot. The special sets its sights on discussing education and will include the likes of educators Geoffrey Canada and Sir Ken Robinson alongside Microsoft's co-founder. In advance of the broadcast, the program will be taped at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Harvey Theater on April 4th. There's no word on whether tickets are up for grabs to attend the event, but we'd start searching for friends who know Gates if you'd prefer the live experience.
