I would like to provide everyone with a status update on my last post, Public Education. The Daily Texan published my article in The Firing Line section today. The article I was responding to can be found here.
I have scanned my response in, as it was published in the newspaper. I did not come up with the title, The Daily Texan did. Please see the image below:
I would like to thank John (who commented on my last post) for the advice regarding shortening the response.
Here are a few tips I learned about publishing in the campus newspaper (my apologies if these seem like common-sense):
1) Keep your article short and to the point
2) Directly quote the article you are responding
3) Back your ideas up with concrete evidence (i.e., statistics of some sort)
If anyone else has any tips, please feel free to post them.
