Required Reading 

If you have any role in education in this country, or if you are simply interested in how we are teaching today's kids, then you must read the series of articles by Charles Murray that conclude today in The three pieces represent a continuation of Mr. Murray's work on I.Q. and its relationship to public policy first explored in his controversial book "The Bell Curve."

Commentary 1 looks at educating those with below average intelligence.

Commentary 2 speaks to who should and should not go to college.

Commentary 3 talks about teaching those at the top of the I.Q. scale.

Years ago, Mr. Murray's views on welfare changed the program's structure forever. He may have the same impact on our schools.
