"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 Your Legislator on a Committee for Educational Policy, Budget or Appropriations?

Many thanks to a watchdog for forwarding me the list of house committee assignments of state legislators involved in crafting educational policies, budgeting, and the appropriation of educational funding. Please contact your senator and representative regarding your views on the educational plan proposed via Educated Citizenry 2020; but the legislators listed below will also be important to contact as well.

Below are the House Committees that were appointed this week by Speaker Steve Tilley. These committees will be instrumental on setting the educational direction of the state. Determine if YOUR State Representative has been assigned to any of these committees. President Pro Tem of the Senate Rob Mayer has not yet appointed committees.
