"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

Read the statistics about the enormous amount of spending and lack of results. The Common Core Standards signed by the State Board will create more spending, more layers, and based on the last 50 years of experience no discernible increase in testing scores.

Contact your legislator and express your concern regarding the control the Board is allowed under the state constitution. Perhaps it is time to reel in the spending and bad decisions of this group.

Watch the spending. Ask questions. Demand answers. Become a watchdog.
