Jay in the WSJ

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Jay took time off from his fishing trip to pen an Op-Ed for the WSJ on private schools and tolerance. Big finish:

It is not clear why private schools have an advantage in producing more tolerant students. It may be that private schools are better at teaching
civic values like tolerance, just as they may be more effective at teaching math or reading. It is also possible that, contrary to elite
suspicion, religion can teach important lessons about human equality and dignity that inspire tolerance.

    Also possibly of interest – this was getting a lot of discussion on First Thoughts right after the president’s speech so I discussed the research there:

    Is it possible that Obama’s early education in an Indonesian Madras led him to believe ALL religious schools are biased?
