Marsha Enright talks about how the collectivists have controlled education far longer than most people realize. She recounted its history and how it is used today to transform our young people into sheepish conformists, ripe to their agenda, while making the poor poorer. What would education look like in a truly free society? Ms. Enright gave us the surprising picture.

Jeffrey Horn discusses how Common Core Standards and high stakes testing are often mentioned as ways of making our children more competitive in a complex, global economy. What if, instead of producing children who can compete globally in language and mathematics skills, these standards are meant to train children to accept surveillance, objectification, and control in the workplace of the future?

Watch the video at right for this special event at Heartland’s Andrew Breitbart Freedom Center in which Marsha Enright and Jeffery Horn talk about educational freedom and Common Core.
