The speakers at the Pioneer Institute will provide answers that will surprise everyone in the room. Everything we read is not factual and their answers will be. I have seen them perform a few times on t.v. and was not always happy with the answers provided, however, they were probably the best answers they could honestly deliver. They are great but possibly slightly timid in my way of thinking. I could be wrong, however, I believe one of these great speakers helped construct the framework for common core. Her name is Sandra Stotsky. I don't believe they will disappoint anyone even though on some issues you may disagree. They appear to place honor above victory.
