Things that everyone should read

These three articles were written by Charles Murray, author of The Bell Curve. They appeared last week in the Wall Street Journal's on-line Everyone should read these. They deal with three "simple truths" about education:

1) Half of all children are below average in intelligence. We do not live in Lake Wobegon.

2) Far too many people of above-average intelligence go to four-year colleges.

3) Our future depends crucially on how we educate the next generation of people gifted with unusually high intelligence.
