Required Readings

Required Readings, 26 November 2013

Good morning, everyone! I’m back from my brief storm-induced hiatus, and I bring some articles for you to peruse on this Tuesday morning.


-A new book posits that the U.S. educational system should view Japan’s as a cautionary tale (via Dan).

-This article advocates for doing away with the lecture system, while this one urges us not to give up on classroom lectures (via Dan).

-The Texas State Board of Education has approved all proposed textbooks for high school biology and environmental science courses.

Tuition revenue is down – how might this affect universities in the U.S.?
