Catching up on the Carnivals

I've manged to completely miss the Carnival of Education lately, so here's last week's and here's this week's versions.

Last week's Carnival linked to a fantastic rant about more-pious-than-thee textbooks that mix "social justice" with basic math ("Itís an equation! No, itís an inequality! No, waitÖitís bullshit!"). This week, there's a great discussion of why Nancy Drew should never be seen text-messaging her crime-solving compatriots ("What's wrong with you? Do you really think our kids are too stupid to understand that things were different back in the day?").

Don't miss.
