"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

Is this the type of change our students need?

American children in failing schools deserve better:


Congress gave Arne Duncan a $4.35 BILLION dollar check, and this is what he does? He closes successsful schools for inner city children. Where is the disconnect in this scenario?

Do you feel hopeful for Missouri children? Do you trust the Department of Education to make the best decisions for your child? How do you feel about your state signing away its rights to set standards for your child? Why should our children be any different than the students in DC?

Do you believe the Department of Education REALLY wants students to succeed? If so, why was this successful program discontinued?
