Jane Shaw, of the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy, writes to let us know of a new report:
George Cunningham has just written a report on education schools in North Carolina (which are a lot like education schools across the country!). His findings have serious implications for K-12 education. Most education schools are imbued with the culture of progressivist/constructivist theory. He lays this out--and the damaging effects--in his paper, "UNC Education Schools: Helping or Hindering Potential Teachers?" published by the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy.
