We shouldn’t celebrate too lustily over the latest graduation news.
It is very difficult, short of a dictatorship, to impose content both deep and broad on diverse people. Why? Because diverse people will not agree on what that content should be.
Do Nevada lawmakers want their legacy to be the most expansive educational choice initiative in the nation or merely a squandered opportunity?
The AFT will apparently side with even one of the world’s worst governments if, it seems, doing so could hobble for-profit schooling.
In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court of Nevada today upheld the nation’s most expansive educational choice law, but the legislature must find a new finding mechanism.
We have a much more fundamental problem than “banned” books. We have an education system that is inherently unequal and conflictual, and we need to fix it.

In The Beautiful Tree, James Tooley braids together personal experience, community action, and family devotion, and takes readers to the very heart of education. Tooley journeys from Africa to China, sharing insights from children, parents, teachers, and entrepreneurs who taught him that the poor are not waiting for educational handouts. They are building their own schools and learning to save themselves.

Americans are diverse – ethnically, religiously, philosophically – but all are forced to support public schools. The intention behind this is largely good: to unite people and minimize discord. However, as the examples contained in this map show, the effect is often very much the opposite.
