Superintendent should champion public education

Texas must be doing something right

Texas already looms large in its own imagination. Its elevated self-image didn't need this: More than half of the net new jobs in the U.S. during the past 12 months were created in the Lone Star State.

Coastal residents may be a bit behind

The greatest place on earth is the coast. Now, mind you, I love the Georgia coast better than about anywhere I can think of, but we're not the only place on earth with a coast. Every coast has its qualities - good and bad. My coast has it all.

A rush to educate

"But further, we err, not only in religion but in philosophy likewise, because we do not know or believe 'the scriptures.' The sciences have been compared to a circle of which religion composes a part. To understand any one of them perfectly it is necessary to have some knowledge of them all. Bacon, Boyle and Newton included the scriptures in the inquiries to which their universal geniuses disposed them, and their philosophy was aided by their knowledge in them."

An education in spending

Of all the things the Newark, N.J., school system needs, the last of them is more money. Newark spends more per pupil than any other city in the country, and gets dismayingly little for it. For $22,000 per pupil - more than twice the national average - it graduates half its students.
