Why you go to school / Merit Pay

Students--The blog post I promised you is coming. After our incident on Friday, it's more important than ever to have the conversation we started over a week ago. But in the meantime, this:

Girls poisoned to prevent their education

If I could think of no other reason for you to go to school, I'd always have "Because the Taliban don't want you to."

I blog about this so often, you'd think I don't think about anything else. But I do. Really.

Merit pay doesn't work.

I have read neither the blog nor the study. I can't believe that anybody thinks this is the final word on the issue, though.

Hat tip to Alexander Russo for both of these stories.
