"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

A Redistributive Halloween

In school we teach the importance of the equal sign. Our equations must balance whether in math, or chemistry or physics.  Over in Language Arts the progressives teach that fair and equal are synonyms. In order to be fair we must be equal: equal schools, equal outcomes etc.

But alas, America's schools are failing. Our kids understand "equal" in math and science, but we have not been successful in teaching the synonyms of equal and fair.  Just watch Steven Crowder try to apply the lesson.

Happy Halloween everyone!
