The long policy article of the weekend was probably the New York Times Magazine article on Bill Gates' desire for an integrated history course. I think it is pretty awesome that he admits to a C+ plus in organic chemistry.
So who taught Gates organic chemistry? It would probably have been between 1973 and 1975 or so... Was it the Fiesers?
(Substantively, I don't think the article addresses what I want to know, which is "What has been the history of teaching world history? How does Gates' course fit into that, and are there prominent examples of this sort of curriculum either succeeding or dramatically failing?"
