  1. Charles” comment is correct that all those mentioned are education skeptics. However, they don”t all agree. For example, I flatly disagree with Caplan”s book and his approach in general. Cochrane thinks preschool for poor children is a waste of money, whereas I think the mistake lies in arguing that preschool improves academic outcomes. Who cares if it does? Get poor kids away from their often incompetent mothers and crushing environments. Give the kids some sense that the government cares about them. SlateStarCodex is pro-charter, which I think is a terrible idea. Charters are basically private schools on the public dime, which means they can cap and skim. Both will increase the costs of education. Charters can only increase the amount we spend on education, which is crazy. Caplan and SSC would certainly give free public education to all immigrants, as we do now, while I think we should limit free public education to citizens. And so on. Finally, I”m not a skeptic in the sense that I don”t think education is pointless. What”s pointless is trying to equalize outcomes without accounting for cognitive ability.
