Focus on Winning Issues in 2014: ObamaCare and School Choice

The year that we are bidding farewell to has been nothing short of creepy when one considers it through the prism of personal freedom. As I write this, I'm fairly certain the NSA is watching me through the lights on my Christmas tree, which also seem to be blinking "What are you wearing?" in Morse code. We have a unilateral edict egomaniac in the White House and we are mere hours away from the IRS being able to demand your financials AND your latest colonoscopy pics (trust me, they'll get there).

Common Core Coming for Little Girls

A lot of people around the country are concerned with Common Core for a variety of reasons. Americans are standing up and fighting back against this huge government intrusion. However, it turns out that schools aren’t the only people lining up to indoctrinate your kids into common core. Your little girls are getting common core in places you might not expect: in their toys and extra-curricular activities.

Losing Literacy

Until WWII, American children learned to read by utilizing phonics. Words were not learned by memorization but rather, children learned that each letter had a corresponding sound. When put together with other sounds, a word was made. This method had proved to be extraordinarily successful since America’s founding and two centuries beyond. It was this method that allowed Benjamin Franklin to be a proficient reader before ever stepping foot into a classroom.

Common Core Destroys School Choice

An important part of why many parents favor school choice is it increases the chances their kids will get into a good college. Private school students and homeschoolers regularly score higher on college entrance exams than most public school children.

Common Core Takes Over in LAUSD

Last week, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) debated the funding of Common Core, deciding to delay approval on the proposed $113 million implementation budget.
