Education Articles

Several people have sent me education articles over the past six weeks. My stack is growing. I must confess I am not making it through the articles as rapidly as I would like.  Here's what's in the stack now:

One Response to “Education Articles”

    John, it appears that virtually all of this stuff comes from the people responsible for the current state of public education. Fixing public education will require substantially new thinking, not more inbred ed-school approaches.
    As for the Aspen Institute, I note that they no longer use the “for Humanistic Studies” phrase as part of their name, but they appear to be a secular humanist organization nonetheless. I would be wary of them.
