Over the past few days, I've gotten two emails from readers of Rules of Thumb who come from the world of education, looking to apply the idea of rules to the world of schools.
One of the things I'm most troubled about and most interested in is the state of public education in America--I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for instance, where 50% of the kids who enter high school do not graduate from high school. Could a new set of "rules of thumb" provide guidelines and templates for new thinking about what really does work in public education? Here's one blog that got me thinking--see if it kick-starts your own ideas on public education and new rules. You can find it (here).
