Civil Discourse in Action
Not terribly long ago, letter-writing was a cornerstone of our communication. It was a genre that nurtured the expression of our politest selves, cherished word choice and paid careful attention to tone.

Finn, Jr, distinguished senior fellow and president emeritus, The Thomas B. Fordham Institute, exchange their ideas and opinions on a number of very timely education issues in this short series of notes.
