"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

Who's Looking Out for Our State Sovereignty?

Not Governor Nixon! In July he vetoed legislation that would allow Missouri legislators to hold federal funds from the Race to the Top grant program until they had a chance to decide whether or not the “strings” attached were in line with our goals for education in Missouri. Apparently, he has no problem with selling out our state sovereignty and giving up local control of our schools while creating an education system that will require endless amounts of bailouts in the future just to sustain itself. At some point, the federal bailout fund will dry up and Missouri taxpayers will again be stuck footing the bill for more government controlled education in our local schools. It’s time we tell Governor Nixon and the Missouri Board of Education to cut those “strings” to the federal government! Once again, it’s is our children and our money!
