Louisiana: Key Vote YES on Three Education Reform Bills

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our 15,000 Louisiana FreedomWorks members, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on three education reform bills. Introduced by Rep. Steve Carter (R-District 68), H.B. 933, H.B. 974 and H.B. 976 will allow parents to choose their child’s school and improve the quality of education in Louisiana. If these bold education reforms are passed, Louisiana will become a model for the rest of the nation to follow.

FreedomWorks Stands With Governor Jindal

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NEAP), which tracks the test scores of 4th through 8th graders across the country, Louisiana ranks 49th with only 18% of these students considered proficient in reading and math. This fact is particularly troubling since state and local governments spend nearly $12,000 per student per year on what can only be called a failed system.

South Carolina School Choice Bill is a Win-Win

The Campaign of Silence: How the Country Ignores Education

In the past weekend, two more debates came and went, marking two more wasted opportunities for the Republican presidential candidates to address education reform. In an increasingly competitive global economy, finding a better way to educate future American generations is a topic that warrants serious discussion.
