Back in the 2000’s, Matt Miller was a frequent writer about education issues. One of his more memorable pieces was this one: First, Kill All the School Boards  [2008]. 

Now, according to his Wikipedia page, he’s a senior fellow at CAP and a regular contributor at a variety of publications and broadcasts but doesn’t cover education very much.  

But I miss the combination of smart, thought-provoking writing.

Anyone out there doing this kind of thing today? Please point me to them.
