Schools That Focus on Indoctrination Rather than Education Pay a Price

We have written here, here and here about the extraordinary extent to which the Edina public schools have prioritized left-wing indoctrination over academic excellence. On Monday, the Center will release the Fall issue of Thinking Minnesota, featuring a cover story on the Edina public schools by Kathy Kersten. Watch for it!

Has Edina’s focus on politics rather than academics hurt the school system’s students? Here is just one fact from Kathy’s blockbuster story: between the 2013-2014 school year and the 2016-2017 school year, Edina High School dropped from 10th place among Minnesota’s high schools in math proficiency, to 40th place. I wonder how many families would have re-thought their decision to move to Edina had they realized that by 2017, the high school would rank only 40th in the state in math proficiency?
