"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

Will They Teach Constitutional Principles in Common Core?

Did you learn about constitutional law in school?  Do you think new standards/assessments will be structured in the manner of attorney KrisAnne Hall's presentation? Here is youtube video on constitutional authority, Unlimited Federal government deciding the limits of its own power is a monarchy:

She also has an interesting comment on "collectivism" and individual rights.  This is thought provoking in light of the MSNBC spot with Melissa Harris-Perry promoting collectivism in thinking about your children in which Ms. Harris-Perry Hall stated we have to break through the idea that kids belong to their parents:

What do you think?  Will Common Core embrace constitutional principles as espoused by Ms. Hall or will your child be reading about the wonders of collectivism as espoused by Ms. Harris-Perry?  My bet your child or grandchild will be reading curriculum about the wonders of globalism.  After all, a major goal of Common Core standards is to prepare our children to be global workers and citizens.  That doesn't leave much room for the US Constitution.
