"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

An Education in how the Nanny State Operates


Guest commentary: Will my child be allowed to work on my farm?

This is a sad and alarming guest commentary from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on the control the American government wants over your children.  It doesn't stop at the school door.  It's in your home, on your farm,  in the packing of your child's school lunch.
What is the belief of the elitists in the government?  The American parent is incompetent.  Leave it to the government to dictate to you how to raise your children.
