How are charter schools doing compared to public schools?
Among wonks, the conventional wisdom has congealed: on average, not much better.
This is technically true, but as the economic analyst Adam Ozimek points out, this is misleading, as averages so often are.

Something remarkable happened last Thursday: a filibuster-proof majority of senators voted to get the ball rolling on paid sick leave. Specifically, they amended the Senate’s budget resolution, calling for a "deficit-neutral reserve fund for legislation to allow Americans to earn paid sick time."

I'm a new father. Like many new parents, I've been giving a lot of thought to how I want to raise my child. And just as this became my life's primary mission, there emerged this phenomenon of "free range kids." An anti-helicopter parenting movement was just what I wanted.
Lenore Skenazy, who is sort of the spokeswoman for free range parenting, says she is fighting "the belief that our children are in constant danger from creeps, kidnapping, germs, grades, flashers, frustration, failure, baby snatchers, bugs, bullies, men, sleepovers and/or the perils of a non-organic grape." Finally!
To describe the village of Nagoro, Japan, as "tiny" would be an overstatement. The hamlet in the southern part of the country boasts only 35 aging villagers. But one resident has been steadily bolstering this fading population with a dedicated, if lethargic, group of bystanders.
