On this week’s Education Gadfly Show podcast (listen on Apple Podcasts and Spotify), Checker Finn, Mike Petrilli, and David Griffith discuss whether American education should stop trying to send every student to college, and what that may mean for high school course requirements. Then, on the Research Minute, Amber Northern examines a study on how universal school breakfasts affect disadvantaged student’s academic outcomes.
- Mike’s piece that sparked the conversation: “We all agree that college isn’t for everyone. We should start acting like it.”
- The study that Amber reviewed on the Research Minute: Rahi Abouk and Scott Adams, “Breakfast After the Bell: The Effects of Expanding Access to School Breakfasts on the Weight and Achievement of Elementary School Children,” Economics of Education Review (January 2022).
