Krugman Schooled

Dave Burge schools Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman on how to evaluate student performance across states.

Race figures in. And when you figure it in, black kids in Texas are doing better in school than black kids in Wisconsin. And white kids in Texas are doing better than white kids in Wisconsin.

Read the whole thing.

Spencerblog sez Dave Burge deserves a Nobel Prize for his efforts. Krugman's.

Case in point: The facts aren't what the facts are, the facts are what people perceive them to be... And my perception is that even though Krugman was well-scholled he did not become well- educated. After all, he has all the education and all the honors he needs without taking the time to examine the facts... So truth be damned. As long as he can be touted as being the expert we should listen. Facts be damned. Sad. Indeed, very sad...
