Senator Warren’s “Pretty Awful” Education Plan

by Chester E. Finn Jr.via EducationNext
Friday, October 25, 2019

Senator Elizabeth Warren is famous for hurling at least one major plan against every policy issue and societal problem you ever heard of—or hadn’t. It’s true that a lot of them make my head ache, some of them turn my stomach, and practically none seem likely to get enacted during her lifetime, even were she to win the Oval Office.
