    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos under fire for saying schools can report undocumented

    Odd. I would think the secretary of education would be interested in the education of kids, not trying to get their parents thrown out of the country. Must be those deep Christian values of hers. Indeed, apparently using schools to attempt to enforce immigration policy is a local community...

    Education by State

    I'm a big believer that policy choices should be made not based on abstract principles (what you'd like to think would work), but rather based on real-world outcomes (what the evidence suggests is actually working). Given the way our states act as laboratories for democracy, a good approach is...

    The War In Education

    School Privatization Is Educational Apartheid by Another Name It's a nauseatingly one-sided take on education. I agree that education should be publicly funded, but I cite this as an example of the sorts of propaganda that are flying everywhere on the issue. In particular, what annoyed me was...
