poliiticians love charter schools. Scientists have other things in mind.
This exposé of charter schools is interesting, and while it might be unfair to paint all charter schools with the same broad brush, when politicians of both parties climb in bed with an idea, perhaps we should be particularly wary.
On the other hand, I would like to call my reader's attention to the work of Biologist/inventor Manu Prakash at Stanford who has created a 50 cent printable origami microscope and a $5.00 chemical analysis music box that is capable of running complex processes.
In the wood shop yesterday I began fitting out the insides of boxes to hold turned samples of 27 species of Arkansas woods.
Make, fix, create, and extend to others the love of learning likewise.
