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?

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?
