Current Reading

This blog is primarily for me to blog my responses to books that I'm reading. Sometimes I blog about other stuff too, though.

I'm currently re-reading Systems of Survival by Jane Jacobs.

And behold! On this day, in the twilight days of the year of our Lord 2015, the NYT dared print something truthful about education!

Once per month the NYT dares to print something insightful about education, something that doesn't flatter centrist sensibilities.  This month the NYT dares to notice that producing more high school graduates is not the same thing as producing more college-ready graduates.  One might dare to hope that next month the NYT will notice that simply following "best practices" is insufficient to guarantee that they will succeed in college.
