Resource Curse in Education
Parents and educational leaders may want to slow down on the drive to transform the public schools into computer-dependent institutions. As with medications, computerized education may present unanticipated side effects.

Same Sex Education
Same-sex classrooms were long the norm. U.S. public education adopted the coeducational model at the end of the 19th century. Thanks to changes in American culture, it's probably time to return to the single-sex model, at least from grades 7-12.

School and the Real World
One of the most annoying expressions that I hear educators use is "the real world," as if school existed in some kind of Never-Never Land. School IS the real world, and it ought to have real world consequences.

School Choice Prelude to Privatization
Supporters of school vouchers and charter schools claim they have the interest of all children at heart, but funneling tax money away from the public schools can only lead to the destruction of an adequate education for the majority of American children.

School Policy Won’t Wipe Out Bullying
Like racism and the subjection of women, bullying is a component of human behavior deeply embedded in the human psyche. Children are exposed to the concept from birth. Children bullied at home are likely to become bullies at school.

School Principal's Job
The present system of placing everything from curriculum to lunchroom management under one supervisor is outdated and inefficient. The job of “principal” is too big for one person.

School Reform Starts with Reading Reform
U.S. schools K-12 succeed in educating only about 40% of the nation's children. The only meaningful school reform would purge both schools and teachers' colleges of the "whole word" theory of reading instruction that dooms 60% of our children to semi-literacy.

Second Chance Education
Instead of pretending that every public school in every community can or should impose an identical educational model on a diverse school population, effective reform will embrace the idea of specialized public schools.

Selling Our Children Down the Digital River
The Common Core Standards have a lot to say about traditional academic subject matter, but educators have latched onto computers and the Internet as the magic bullet that is going to enable them to turn every child into “an independent critical thinker fully prepared for the future,” Bad idea.

Shallow Goals of Common Core Standards
The new Common Core Standards promise much, but as long as teacher training and school structure remain the same, they’re simply new wine in old bottles.
