On the Old Mole for Monday March 10th, hosted  by Tom Becker:
- A Bill Resnick interview on why high stakes testing is being used to destroy U.S. education, and how we can build really engaging stimulating schools in which kids not only learn facts but learn how to think and come to love learning. And we have schools that do it. 
- A reading on the ever increasing productivity of U.S. workers while wages stagnate or even decline--why this is so.
- The  Left and the Law on how "scientific experts" are often so wrong, especially when testifying in death penalty cases.
- Commentary on the struggle in the Ukraine and Crimea and what we can really know.
