"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

It took a hurricane to create functional New Orleans schools--what will it take for Missouri schools?

Check out this great article on HotAir today. When a hurricane wipes out schools, what's a city to do? This report shows how reinstating failed systems is not the way to proceed. Kudos to New Orleans for promoting a system to truly help students, not the unions.


What is it going to take for our government to make sweeping changes such as New Orleans instituted? How many schools/districts need to fail before we see changes that work? Throwing billions of dollars AT THE SAME STRUCTURE HASN'T WORKED IN 40 YEARS.

We want REAL change for our schools. We want our kids to succeed, not line the pockets of unions and promote the agenda of a governor and Board of Education which acquiesces state power.
