"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

Excellent Observation from a Reader on Common Core Standards

We previously wrote asking why Common Core Standards were copyrighted by the NGA and CCSSO.  After all, if they were state led and state standards currently aren't copyrighted, why would copyrighting occur with these standards?

The disclaimers might be even a more important aspect of the NGA/CCSSO public license.

A reader responded:

Basically, if your student completes 12 years of CCSS and is NOT college ready, the controlling organizations cannot be sued for this outcome even though these are the claims being made to sell it to uninformed legislators and taxpayers.
