Bill Gates loves Common Core for our kids, BUT NOT HIS

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

$28,500 per year is nothing.  Friends Seminary in NYC charges $37,000.

Are the taxpayers footing the bill?  I'll bet we are.
