The Shorter Version of My Second Talk

Me: National standardized testing for critical thinking, if done properly, would be a really incredibly good thing.

Audience: Do you know how much it would cost to do this right? Not only that, but do you really think that philosophers will be consulted in constructing the test? And do you know how damaging such a test would be if it were done badly?

Me: Ok, the reality is going to suck. But isn't the fantasy nice?
