The future and more from Richard Sprague

Posted by sprague on April 24, 2003

Diane Ravitch in Daedelus Summer 2002 decries the political correctness in much of standardized education.

My opinion: remember Roger Schank’s observations about the future of an educated mind. You will always be a fingertip away from knowing whatever facts you need, so good education is knowing how to ask good questions.

Paul Johnson article in National Review argues that the Iraq events will be remembered as the first significant defining moment of the 21st Century, and that American & Britain will be viewed positively. The EU and UN and Nato will all be viewed as obsolete.
