Data Trump Values*

These chowderheads could've come up with a better education plan. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

We recently saw the release of yet another study showing that "abstinence-only" education is a waste of money (as well as a crock of shit).

Not that the current crop of chuckleheads who run the country will pay attention. But it's good to know if you care about public education in your community and nationwide.

Here's a PDF of the Mathematica report. Here's the NY Times article from today's paper. The print edition carried a longer piece, so you might consider picking one of those up this afternoon if you still can.

*A "senior Bush advisor" once remarked that "values trump data" where sex education is concerned. Seriously.
