[These are killing learning in schools]

Matthew Yglesias » Lying About Books [via: http://www.tuttlesvc.org/2008/12/reading-and-bluffing.html]
"I wonder if you see a substantial difference based on educational attainment here. It seems to me that college (at least as we did it at Harvard) largely consists of lessons on how to pretend to have read various books. How many section discussions of British Moralists 1650-1800 (by far the best introduction to the subject!) did I bluff my way through?"
