@WilcoxNMP @RichardvReeves @JoshZumbrun also don't forget that the educational distribution has shifted upward over time quite a bit
@WilcoxNMP @RichardvReeves @JoshZumbrun cough, cough...PCE!...cough, cough
@ModeledBehavior yep. BTW, I've proposed as much: https://t.co/cgOsoJsREa & https://t.co/9myA9XfdMO, though I don't call for RCTs explicitly
@djmgaffneyw4 in US it usually means "borrow from the Chinese"
@ModeledBehavior agreed--RCTs are hugely important. But a multiplicity of approaches is still better than a single one, I'd argue
@ModeledBehavior well, states have the option of a pure voucher system, so hopefully we could get more variation than we do in K-12
@ModeledBehavior and what if we had a state/local K-12 system with full school choice, funding that followed results, etc. better analogy
@ModeledBehavior unless the counterfactual is a single nationally-run and uniform K-12 system?
In early childhood, as in antipoverty policy, reform conservatism is about learning what works rather than assuming just need to spend more
Fantastic idea for reforming Head Start from @SenMikeLee & @RepMattSalmon https://t.co/6quDQ9MKdp
Send to states & ID most successful models
@BrendanSaloner not so much delayed gratification as refusal to self-deny for some (purported) greater good
@BrendanSaloner eg, religious strictures, acceptability of divorce, premarital sex, etc. Not all bad, btw.
@BrendanSaloner may not be any. But there has been a loosening of any number of cultural constraints that involve self-abnegation
Anyone know of research examining whether rise in obesity is related to cultural changes like a fall in self-abnegation?

RT @EducationNext: Levitt, Fryer, & List started an experimental preschool and Parent Academy in Chicago. How did it go? https://t.co/wAwZLctMgl @freakonomics
Won't believe until I see how it relates to r>g https://t.co/mkKux2viD9

GenX Latino ex-high-school-football-player knowing rap songs from memory doesnt feel like big news 2 me. Now if one of Dem candidates did...
@AndrewSabisky yes. ACA included demo program based on it, which I support so we can experiment, but home visiting overhyped so far
