Education policy

Postby Joseph Malkevitch » Tue Jan 09, 2018 11:01 am

Dear Colleagues,

For a democracy to thrive it is important to have strong well funded public schools - real public schools, not "businesses" that are supported directly or indirectly with public (taxpayer) money.

Lots of reports get issued about how to improve education in America but many of them don't really care that much about what kind of education the students in our schools get but are concerned with issues related to promoting capitalist solutions and politics.

The NPEC (National Education Policy Center) prepares reports of its own and evaluates policy reports by others. Here is a sample of the kind of work they do, which looks at the failings of a report issued towards the end of 2017:
