Education and Civics:
  • Education - What should schools be teaching? I argue that a greater emphasis on skills and understanding over mere facts/information would be preferable.

  • The Role of Schools - Seems to be both to educate and socialize. Would we do better to separate these two goals? Could homeschooling achieve this?

  • Education and Civic Engagement - Researching "engaged universities", and looking at whether students should be encouraged to get more involved in their communities.

  • Opposing ID - Should "Intelligent Design" Creationism be taught in schools?
