Does The United States Have A New Grand Strategy?

quoting George P. Shultzvia In Homeland Security
Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Some say that the United States has not had a grand strategy since the policy of containment during the Cold War. What is a grand strategy?

No Safe Spaces: Free Speech Under Attack

mentioning Michael McConnellvia Independent Institute
Thursday, November 7, 2019

Once upon a time, universities were the ultimate forum of ideas. Today however, college campuses have become the most intolerant places for diverse and even conventional viewpoints. The First Amendment, intellectual freedom, and the very idea of free speech are under attack with threats, bans, and even violence. A growing number of Americans don’t even believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for campuses to be “safe spaces” in which open debate and discussions are not allowed. This disturbing movement has now been extending beyond colleges and into the wider world. Will we all be silenced for expressing ideas that may not conform with the politically correct? And what can be done to restore constitutional and civil liberties?

Five Reasons We All Should Care That A New NAEP Is Almost Here

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Wednesday, February 21, 2018

It’s become fashionable in ed-policy circles to decry “misNAEPery,” coined by Mathematica’s Steven Glazerman and defined as the inappropriate use of data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress. It’s an important caution to us pundits and journalists not to make definitive declarations about what might be causing national or state test scores to rise or fall when we really have no idea of the true cause or causes.
