Being pro choice on everything, I prefer the Reason Foundation to the Heritage Foundation (which I mostly ignore). Imagine my surprise when I read this month's Reason Magazine article, "Workshop Wonderland, Who's teaching the teachers?" and found one of this list's mathematicians quoted.
The attitude of the author (purported to be a special ed teacher from Texas) is perhaps best illustrated by "...anyone who thinks education can be substantially improved with workshops probably hasn't ever attended one."
