Some useful thoughts from Jim Manzi.
A few interesting ideas, but his idea of a federal educatin standard is no-go with me. The biggest problem in American education has been the federals coming in and screwing it up. Get them out of education totally and abolish the department of education and lay off all it’s employees.
The secong idea I found disturbing was to fund the various federal science agencies was “We should have national technical projects at the scale of the moon landings or the War on Cancer, and should spend past the point of apparent waste.” That is what gets us in trouble with the federal government. Wasteful spending in hopes of getitng a nugget or two of gold somewhere. TO this I say not only NO, but HELL NO.
if a policy suggestion starts with the premise of federal gov’t involvement run rudolph run away.
