The Labrador That Mauled The Frenchwoman
It's not about education, but it is about policymaking: TROUBLEMAKERS: What pit bulls can teach us about profiling (New Yorker). And it's pretty good reading.
"Of course, not all pit bulls are dangerous," writes Malcolm Gladwell (known best for his books The Tipping Point and Blink). "Most don’t bite anyone. Meanwhile, Dobermans and Great Danes and German shepherds and Rottweilers are frequent biters as well, and the dog that recently mauled a Frenchwoman so badly that she was given the world’s first face transplant was, of all things, a Labrador retriever."
