“Do public schools no longer teach critical thinking skills?”


The Anchoress reads the comments to a Washington Post piece and wonders.

Meanwhile, the president of the American Federation of Teachers writes a letter to The Wall Street Journal:

The idea that we could build 25% more bridges and roads by scrapping Davis-Bacon is ludicrous, especially in light of the spectacular example of the $2.4 billion Wilson Bridge renovation project in the Washington, D.C., area, which came in on time, on budget, and paid the workers prevailing wages.[1]





Doesn’t appear they know much about logic, either.
