Reading to some purpose…

Articles I’ve read and really enjoyed:

  • Chapter 2 “Economist & Educator” of Beeby’s classic book “The Quality of Education in Developing Countries” – a lovely read for those bridging the two worlds of education and economics.”
  • Why three is the magic number” – Financial Times article about the importance of the 0-3 years phase in a child’s life. Found lots of parallels between this article and the one I wrote on preschool (here)
  • Better Vision for Education: Making eyeglasses available to primary school students in rural China substantially increased test scores – JPAL research brief 
  • And the quote of the dayAnd I submit that this is what the real, no-bullshit value of your liberal arts education is supposed to be about: how to keep from going through your comfortable, prosperous, respectable adult life dead, unconscious, a slave to your head and to your natural default setting of being uniquely, completely, imperially alone day in and day out.” – David Foster Wallace from here)
