Yet, from a national perspective, if you had to let one state go as a warning to the other 49 to finally get their own financial houses in order, Connecticut would be the ideal choice.
We calculated how much the taxpayers of Illinois, New Jersey, Kentucky, California, or Connecticut might benefit if some public school families were given school choice.
Perhaps the best indicator of how the experimental irreproducibility crisis threatens secular progressivism is how lopsided the political response to solving it has been.
To appreciate just how emotionally damaging these methods can be, it is worth thinking back to a time — not that long ago — when every education graduate school impressed its teachers-in-training with the importance of building a youngster’s self-esteem.
