Things Worth Reading

Posted by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math

Peter Levine, my Favorite Blogger that Nobody Reads but Everybody Should, has posted the text of a speech he gave called "Education for Democratic Citizenship". I'm not much of an education wonk, but it sure looks to me like we've become caught up in the rush to improve our children's reading, math, and science skills, without stopping to ask whether our school system is helping children become good people. Peter is part of a band of folks who are concerned about such things.

As they say, Read The Whole Thing.

nothing substantial to post about, but I think it's funny that "As they say, 'read the whole thing'" has eclipsed "read the whole thing" as a cliché.
