That’s the message Texans heard this week from our legislators in Austin. State Education Commissioner Michael Williams came under fire over his decision to keep low passing standards on state achievement tests (STAAR) for the fourth year in a row.
Some Thoughts on How to Teach for the Intellectual Virtues To teach for the intellectual virtues, one must recognize the significant differences between the higher order critical thinking of a fair-minded critical thinker and that of a self-serving critical thinker.
