Four Educational Myths

posted by Scot McKnight

Charles Murray famously spends time deconstructing the myths of public education. He’s not always right, he’s usually politically incorrect, but he’s always worth listening to — especially if you are a public educator. With civility, what do you think (honestly) […]
