One of the four winners of this year’s Bradley Prizes for Outstanding Achievement will be Charles Murray. Bradley Foundation president Michael Grebe said of Murray, “His groundbreaking research has sparked debate and launched reform in a number of fields, including welfare reform.”
Murray is an excellent choice and I would add that his writings on education are also groundbreaking. His 2008 book Real Education is must reading for anyone who wants to get to the root of our educational malaise. I wrote about Real Education here.
Murray’s most recent book is Coming Apart and Martin Morse Wooster wrote about it for the Pope Center in this piece.
