"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

New Jersey watchdog draws a line in the sand

Here is a video of a New Jersey watchdog. Laura Wellington, blogger and former educator, describes in this clip what's occuring in her daughter's school. The school had the idea to have children perform household chores, the parents would pay them and a portion ($20.00) would be required to be paid to the school. This watchdog has a problem with being told how to run her household and having to bail out a district operating outside of its means.

Welcome to the nanny state.

This watchdog understands the encroachment of government in our lives. Pay attention to your district's fiscal management. It's our money and our kids.
