      “We agree that math and reading skills are important for citizens. So is the study of history, the ability to create a reasoned argument, the arts, research skills, the list goes on. An education system, a system of public schools, must not narrow itself to the lowest common denominator of improving test scores in the so-called basics if it is to be worthy of the democracy it serves. Rather, it must cultivate in all our children the habits of heart and mind that make democratic life possible. Anything less is a betrayal of our commitment to be a nation of, for, and by the people.”
