Williams: Education disaster

By Walter E. Williams | The 2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress report, also known as The Nation’s Report Card, shows that U.S. educational achievement, to put it nicely, leaves much to be desired. When it comes to reading and math skills, just 34 percent and 33 percent, respectively, of U.S. eighth-grade students tested proficient […]

Williams: Attacking our Founders

By Walter E. Williams | Many of my columns speak highly of the wisdom of our nation’s founders.
