Charter Schools And Their Enemies

featuring Thomas Sowellvia Education Next
Friday, July 10, 2020

There is a reason we’re told to respect our elders. It’s bracing and edifying to listen to voices of wisdom and experience. Those whose time grows short are compelled to speak clearly and directly. Thomas Sowell is one such voice. At age 90 and having broken his promise not to pick up his pen again, he has turned his gaze to the world of education, delivering Charter Schools and Their Enemies at a moment when those schools have come under intense scrutiny, their right to exist in question. Charter school leaders need their spines stiffened these days; their overreaching critics have earned a metaphorical punch in the nose. Sowell delivers both in a book he dedicates, as a reminder of what’s at stake, “to those children whose futures hang in the balance.”

‘The Meaning Of Travel’ Review: Let’s Get Out Of Here

by Tunku Varadarajanvia The Wall Street Journal
Thursday, July 9, 2020
Unprecedented in modern history—and in all recorded history, if we put to one side such abstractions as the Wrath of God—is the present fact that the entire world lives in fear of an identical threat.
