Inon, Magen – Ethics and Education, 2019
Research shows that various pharmaceuticals can offer modest cognition enhancing effects for healthy individuals.

Balfanz, Robert – Education Next, 2019
What do K-12 schools need to do to prepare their students for adult success? This was the question that originally catalyzed the standards-and-accountability movement some 30 years ago, though it seems somehow to have gotten lost.

Whitehurst, Grover J. – Education Next, 2019
Does the current drive to incorporate social and emotional learning (SEL) into the K-12 curriculum represent a positive reform that will lead schools to educate the "whole student" and ultimately boost young people's academic success?

Taylor, Peter – Education Sciences, 2018
The secondary-school mathematics curriculum is narrow in scope and technical in character; this is quite different from the nature of the discipline itself. As a result, it offers little inspiration to both students and teachers, and provides students with poor preparation for university mathematics courses and indeed for life. Over the past…

Campbell, Kimberly Hill – Educational Leadership, 2014
Although using the five-paragraph formula to teach essay writing is a ubiquitous practice--and many K-12 teachers defend it--Campbell argues that having students write according to this formula does more harm than good. The formula's tight structure stops the very critical thinking students need to do to strengthen their cognition and their…
