School Choice Key To Global Academic Success
You may have noticed a ridiculous drop-off in the number of posts lately. That's mainly due to a gigantic online education class I'm currently wrestling. So, when I saw John Hood's post on NRO today, I felt like linking to it here. He makes the interesting point that educrats tend to use our low standing in the ranks of global academics to justify even more spending. The trouble is, the countries who are beating us all spend far less than we do. It's not about the money--it may be about school choice (and culture, and teacher training, and . . .).
