"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

Announcing a New Website for Your Educational Questions

Do you go to townhall meetings and don't know what questions about education to ask your legislators?

Do you know how common core standards are close to becoming 'national' standards which in turn will become a 'national' curriculum?

Do you know that if school districts don't like the common core standards it is almost impossible for them to "opt out"?

Do you know how the common core standards compromise the state's right to educate its children?

Do you know about the invasive personal information due to be gathered on your human capital...and your family for "educational" purposes?

Do you know about Race to the Top?

Do you know about the Federal government circumventing state legislatures by granting stimulus money to the states for Race to the Top mandates even if your state did not "win" the Race to the Top competition?

Do you know about the reauthorization process for No Child Left Behind?

Do you know about the additional costs to states and districts because of the unfunded mandates in the Common Core standards?

Do you know how to contact your legislators to tell them not to sign on to the science/history standards being crafted?

Do you know your legislators could be drafting legislation not to implement standards adopted by your State Board of Education?

Do you know if your state signed onto Common Core standards, it is part of a consortia of states and your state can no longer set its own standards?

I'm pleased to announce the launching of a new website that will hopefully answer these questions about:
  • Common Core standards
  • Race to the Top
  • Longitudinal Data System
  • Common Core Assessments
  • Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)
  • No Child Left Behind
  • Family Education Right to Privacy Act (FERPA)
Here is an excerpt from Truth in American Education:

Truth in American Education (TAE) shines a beacon of light directly on the government’s behind-the-scenes efforts to drastically alter American education. As taxpayers, parents and concerned citizens, we believe that proper respect for the American people requires that major educational changes be subject to an open and public discussion prior to approval and implementation, not the other way around.

Truth in American Education provides information to parents, taxpayers, school board members, educators and legislators who are concerned about these issues. At the heart of it, the disposition of these issues will determine whether the federal government and elite, special interest groups have the right to form the hearts and minds of children and whether we will reject, or affirm, the concepts laid down by our founding principles.

Missouri Education Watchdog is proud to be a Network Participant with other organizations concerned about the centralization and crony capitalism present in education today. These organizations hope this website will become an important resource for educational answers and research as Americans discover about the transformational changes in the delivery of education.

Visit the site and the Facebook page. Discover the "Truth in American Education" you won't hear from the Department of Education, many politicians and special interest groups. The Truth in American Education advocates welcome your thoughts and ideas.

  1. I wish there were more summer programs to undo the indoctrination. I think Christian Action Network should make some historically accurate movies for kids to watch in the summer.
