The state of American Education
What's missing is rigor and teaching kids to think critically. Here are two interesting and recent articles about the state of American education.
I especially like the ASCD article. Critical thinking is something that is absent in the workplace these days, and that is why I have emphasized it so strongly with my boys for years now. They are used to me asking the "why" questions of them, and relating choices and consequences / situation and intent, and accountability.
