Re: Middle School Specialists

I'd give you the link, Dave, but the ceremony took place behind the velvet rope of TimesSelect. (Some award.) I trust the NYT can abide a little reminiscing:

Perhaps the most unusual conservative criticism of Bush comes from James G. Poulos at the American Spectator blog, who faults the president's plan to improve math and science education: "Our culture is not doomed but it is unraveling," he writes. "Building a professional army of scientists and mathematicians is precisely the wrong kind of educational emphasis required" to change that.

It was Weber who wept so preemptively over specialists without spirit. That too many of our middle school voluptuaries without heart can't get into good magnet schools is another missed opportunity for a photo op and a bad speech.
