Dr. Walter E. Williams has the knack of distilling an important issue down to its essence, and this article of his is a great example of that.
He’s discussing school choice, and why government should not be involved in the allocation of funds to education. He makes it so easy to understand; can you tell I’m a big fan of his work?
Oh, my. I knew that many of today’s kids learn little or no history in school. But I had no idea it was this bad: a college professor says most of his students think that slavery is an American invention. Wow, just wow.
A British professor confirms what we already knew: children need free play and time alone in order to learn!
According to the U.S. Dept. of Education, the more education parents have, the more likely they are to choose homeschooling.
“Technology is now enabling personalized learning that helps each student master the one absolutely essential skill: learning to learn on their own.”
Sounds like homeschooling to me, but it’s actually from a good article about how to remake education to truly educate today’s students. If you’re a parent of children or teens, it’s well worth your time!
