Improving Educational Outcomes Through Innovation

by Margaret (Macke) Raymondvia PolicyEd
Tuesday, April 23, 2019

While there are many reasons why public education performs poorly in the United States, the overriding cause is that it operates as a monopolistic system. Education is one area where improvement is genuinely in all of our interests. Public education can be improved through expanding the supply of schools, empowering parents, and diversifying within the existing monopoly.

The Cathedral: Mirror Of The West, Then And Now

by Victor Davis Hansonvia National Review
Tuesday, April 23, 2019

The recent fires at the medieval Catholic cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris almost immediately were seen as a referendum on the West, even by those who are not Christians. How at the supposed apex of Western technology, science, and affluence could a sudden inferno devour the spire, roof, and some of the interior icons of the nearly 800-year-old cathedral, itself perched on the bank of a river, and the survivor of centuries of desecrations, remodels, expansions, and repairs, when the arts of preservation, fire prevention and response, and engineering were supposedly backward by our standards?

Governance In An Emerging New World: The Middle East In An Emerging World

Monday, April 22, 2019
Hauck Auditorium, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

Political upheaval, violence, and the Sunni-Shia divide have defined the Middle East and North Africa to outside observers for many years, but states across the region also confront shared global challenges of demographic transitions and governance in the age of social media, as well as the compelling economic potential of new technologies. The discussion will address what these profound undercurrents, as well as the changing climate and expanding role of women, mean for the major Arab states, Turkey, Iran, and Israel.

The Hoover Institution hosted a public panel discussion "The Middle East in an Emerging World" on Monday, April 22, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST. The livestream can be viewed below.

Ontario's Progress On Liquor Laws

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Monday, April 22, 2019

In Canada, a new Ontario provincial budget released last week proposes to loosen alcohol consumption rules in the province, including allowing licensed establishments to start serving alcohol at 9 a.m., legalizing tailgating, letting local governments set rules that would allow people to consume alcohol in public parks, and letting breweries, wineries, and distilleries serve more than mere samples. Other proposed changes include plans to allow convenience stores to sell beer and wine, legalizing happy hour advertisements, and postponing a new wine tax that was set to take effect this month.

The Socioeconomic Achievement Gap Hasn’t Budged In Half A Century. Now What?

Monday, April 22, 2019

For over half a century, Americans have relied on public schooling as the nation’s core strategy for promoting social and economic mobility across generations, giving every child a fair start regardless of family income and zip code. But a groundbreaking new study has found that despite enormous public investment — now at over $700 billion annually — achievement gaps between wealthier and poorer children have remained unchanged over the past 50 years.

Teacher Raises Will Pay For Themselves

quoting Eric Hanushekvia Post Bulletin
Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Democratic presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris of California wants to increase teachers’ pay nationwide to the level enjoyed by other college-educated workers — and her proposal would give a typical educator a $13,500 raise. She suggests covering the $30-billion-a-year price tag by increasing the estate tax and closing some loopholes benefiting the top 1 percent of taxpayers.

Saddam Hussein Could Have Sunk America's Most Powerful Battleship Ever

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia National Interest
Monday, April 22, 2019

Could Saddam Hussein’s armed forces have sunk a U.S. Navy battleship? That might seem like a question destined to launch an excursion into alt-history, but it was far from hypothetical to the 3,200 or so crewmen of the battleships USS Wisconsin and Missouri who squared off against Iraq in 1991. It was daily life, especially when they closed with hostile shorelines to render naval gunfire support to forces ashore—and thus came within striking reach of Iraqi defenses. My answer: yes.

Betsy DeVos Is Wrong About Accountability For Schools Of Choice

by Chester E. Finn Jr.via Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Accountability for schools of choice is a topic forever in the news—and in dispute. The latest combatant is none other than Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who made clear in a recent interview with the Associated Press that she favors letting the market work its will and trusting parents to judge whether a school is worth attending. In this context, she was referring specifically to private schools insofar as they participate in publicly financed voucher or tax-credit-scholarship programs.
