There’s a great article on the Washington Post opinion page today by Nick Rabkin and Robin Redmond about something I’ve been saying for a long time: the way to improve schools is not to cut back, dumb-down, or ‘stick to the basics.’ No, the way to improve schools is to actually challenge the students and to keep things interesting!

Imagine that.

And it even seems to be working in poor, inner-city schools that some thought were hopeless.
