On The Purpose of U.S. Education

U.S. EducationComplaints, Complaints

Every so often books and articles appear bemoaning the state of U.S. education. The complaints address all levels, from the elementary grades to high school to college and university.

Tunisia: The Arab world's full-fledged democracy?

by Soumaya Ghannoushi

The spoils of the Arab Spring have been divided among many. If the most obvious beneficiaries have been the old guard, Arab autocrats and their foreign allies, who have an equal interest in keeping the region firmly under their thumb, they have not been the only ones. Al-Qaeda's share of the spoils has been substantial.
