Those smart Jews

Oy veh.

The American Enterprise Institute recently held a forum on why Jews are so smart (I’m not saying it, mind you; the AEI is saying it).

The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank “covered it.”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/29/AR2007102902094.html?nav=rss_print/asection

Thanks to my friend Andrea Useem at “ReligionWriter.com”:http://www.religionwriter.com/ for pointing it out.

Gary Stern

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
