(Mensaje se repite en EspaƱol) (For a national view of public education reform see the end of this blog post) There is a disturbing trend that is becoming more and more prevalent in various aspects of American society, which has come to have much more in common with the fanaticism it derides in Muslim fundamentalism than in a rich history of free thinking that derives strength from and protects the ideas of those who question authority. Irrational orthodoxy that eschews fact, logic, and reason, while taking exception with this same type of aberrant behavior in countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan, sees no problem with imposing their right reasoning against parallel intellectual traditions in these countries and the United States of rational social order and accomplishment.
