I.Q. tests and tests for learning disabilities are being used more and more often in K-12 education, and have identified new learning disorders in over a million students. These include types of dyslexia, dyscalculia (difficulty with mathematical reasoning), ADHD, and problems with executive functioning. At the same time, in politics, more Americans than ever before feel it is time for a third party in American politics, and third party candidates are feeling this momentum from activists and voters.
Educator and political activist Arvin Vohra shows how these movements are fundamentally connected, and how they are affecting all of us in surprising and unsettling ways.
