"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

My Common Core Conversation with Phyllis Schlafly

I was invited to speak with Phyllis Schlafly on her radio show yesterday and we had a great conversation.  Many thanks to Phyllis for her invitation to talk about Common Core.  Thanks to the listeners for their call in questions, particularly the teacher who questioned the need for standards for music instruction!  He believes music is a creative process and I agree.

I hope you enjoy the interview and listen for Anne's interview with Phyllis scheduled for September 7.

You can listen here.
