"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

The Department of Education needs to take classes in civility and protocol

Arne Duncan is teaming up with Al Sharpton to counter protest Glenn Beck's shindig on August 28:

When the Daily Caller attempted to talk with Arne Duncan about this partisan stance, his department hung up on the reporter. Tsk, tsk. Not very respectful and certainly not a good role model for our schoolchildren.

This is a dynamic duo: Sharpton, who orchestrated the Tawana Brawley case, the "evidence" was shown to be false and revealed Sharpton to be a liar...reminiscent of the Duke rape case...and Duncan, who has lulled states to sign away their educational sovereignty for money which requires states to plunge further into debt for unknown standards...this is reminiscent of the wizard in the Wizard of Oz; everyone thinks he is very smart, but in reality, he is shown to be thoroughly incompetent.

Shouldn't Arne Duncan be focused on what will help our students succeed in school instead of protesting a private citizen exercising his free speech?

How is this helping the education of children nationwide?
