School’s out! For the summer… and maybe for good.
It’s clear that there’s a bubble in education… from student loans, political correctness, and flawed science.
How much bigger is this bubble going to get? And when will it pop?
We have a high-level Department of Education mole who tells us the real story behind Betsy DeVos, the most controversial member of President Trump’s cabinet for her “crime” of allowing parents to send their children to the school of their preference.
And if one man can save education, it’s the former governor of Indiana and current president of Purdue University – Mitch Daniels. He shares an “open letter” to Purdue about a few bold steps he’s taking.
Financial analyst Porter Stansberry shares the best way to grow rich – wildly rich. It’s an investment secret he plans to teach his children, titled: “The Only Stocks I’ll Teach My Children to Buy.”
Then, we have three folks sharing their very different education experiences…
- Hannah Long shares the unexpected upside of a homeschooled education.
- Turney Duff details the unexpected upside of a Wall Street education.
- And Christine Rosen shares the unexpected upside of a religious education.
Professor David Labaree writes about how the American college went from pitiful to powerful with a deep, historical look at the education system in the U.S. And Alice B. Lloyd travels to Broward County to report on the Parkland shooting… and discovers the biggest national scandal you’ve never heard about.
Andrew Ferguson details the reproducibility crisis in social science. Thousands of studies are worse than useless… and you’ll never guess who’s to blame. As one of the most prestigious scientific journals admits… “Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.”
Plus, don’t miss P.J.’s essay on “Adventure Nerds” – what he learned taking his son Cliff to the 34th Space Symposium. As P.J. writes:
Maybe Cliff will grow up to be a space hero. Or maybe Cliff will grow up to be a space nerd. Or maybe there isn’t any difference between the two.
Finally, former CIA analyst Buck Sexton tells us how to be the next generation’s greatest spy. (Think memos, not karate chops.)
