"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

Senate Hearing on SB210 set for March 6th

The hearing for Senator John Lampings bill SB210 is set for 3:00 on March 6th. This bill would stop implementation of the Common Core Standrds and assessments in Missouri. Similar legislation is being considered in 12 other states.


  1. Keeping an eye on this. Here in Florida, newly appointed Commissioner of Education Tony Bennett (recently voted out of office in Indiana) says common core is on track for implementation and all efforts on that happening. Not a peep from any Florida legislator.

  2. Men of character and morality have to rise up and reclaim all that has been lost. Dads, we need you. Dads need to learn all they can and be the voice for their children and grandchildren.

    Please go to www.auee.org and equip yourselves with knowledge so that you will be discerning and wise when it comes to conversation about the Common Core Initiative. Don't let people box you into conversation about the standards. It's the whole package, especially the privacy issues.
