"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

Frank Zappa and School

High school graduation

Picked up from Althouse.

Frank Zappa's idea of school.  Interesting thoughts from 1981.  He stated, "Schools train people to be ignorant, with style".  In 2013?  "Schools train people to be ignorant, in a common manner."

Style is so overrated.
