DESE: The original box of rocks that nothing is dumber than
July 24, 2012
According to research from Missouri Education Watchdog, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) agreed to surrender Missouri’s education voice under Obama’s “Race to the Top” scheme. Race to the Top was a contest in which states agreed to let the federal Department of Education, via two puppet organizations, run all of the state’s education systems. In exchange, some states were awarded money, but others were not. Chris Nicastro, chief rock in the DESE box, applied for the grant.
