"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

Obama Loses Chicago...Writer and Three Dog Night Calls the Administration and Arne Duncan Out

Hat tip to a watchdog for this article from a Chicago blogger:

As our previous posting stated, no one is happy with the Arne Duncan education plan. It's bad for teachers, students, parents, taxpayers, administrators. The plan is allegedly going to increase test scores by redistributing teachers, plunging states further into debt, taking away curriculum control from states by creating common core standards. According to studies for the last four decades, increased federal funding for schools has created NO significant increase in student achievement.

Here's a musical offering to Duncan:

Thanks to Three Dog Night. Perfect label for the Department of Education.
