"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

Smart Girl Politics Is All Over Common Core - So Over

From Smart Girl Politics

Diane Durdaller led a panel discussion with Marcia Chambliss of Smart Girl Politics, Joy Pullmann of the Heartland Institute, and Rosa Leonetti. The panel discussed the topic: "Common Core - What's Happening to Our Schools?" The panelists reviewed the recent history of America's top-down education policy from the 70s through No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, and now Common Core. After this overview, they discussed activist strategies to slow down this national jump into yet another public/private partnership unanswerable to the taxpayers who fund it.
