Education Around the Blogosphere

Yesterday was pretty cool because two bloggers I really respect took up some themes I introduced on this blog.

Zenpundit has an excellent article, “A Convo on Monopolies and Public Education,” in response to my earlier piece, “Monopoly!” As he states, “we draw different normative conclusions while agreeing on most points of fact, second order effects and political dynamics,” so it’s been fascinating. I’ll be replying soon — check it out!

But that’s not all! Catholicgauze is glad we’re not Krygyzstgan in his post “OCED 2009 Report on Student Performances,” which discusses my post, “Don’t Ignore the Poor.” Catholicgauze has often talked about the poor state of US geographical education, so education matters are close to his heart.
