Victory for Louisiana School Vouchers?

DC bureaucrats are attempting once again to interfere with the educational choice of parents. Do states have the right to direct education for the students that reside there? If the latest battle in Louisiana is any indication, some in the federal government won't be happy with anything other than invasion of your rights.

Former Anti-Voucher Advocate Now Advocates For Vouchers and School Choice

There is a lot of misinformation about school choice, and sometimes even wise and well intentioned people are misled.  As school choice success stories begin to go mainstream though, more people are championing the ideas of empowering students and parents. Just ask Ann Duplessis, former anti-voucher advocate who is now at the forefront of a group fighting for vouchers.

School Choice is a Winning Issue

Demographics matter, and after the disappointing 2012 election results, the GOP has decided it may be a good idea to focus on growing the party by reaching out to the youth and minority communities.  Ignoring certain demographics will continue to hurt the party, as will ignoring key issues.  Just like during the 2012 campaign cycle, the GOP is leaving out a key issue that could not only grow the party, but more importantly, could help millions of children receive a better education. I'm referring to school choice.

The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice recently released a study on the factors that go into these decisions, and the answers might surprise you.

How is School Choice Like Grocery Shopping?

Imagine that when you woke up today, Congress had passed a new law to handle where and how you shop for groceries. Instead of shopping at the store you prefer, you now have to shop at one store chosen for you by a Grocery Shopping Committee based on where you live. No longer can you shop the sale ads to get the best bargains for the groceries you want.

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.

Teachers' Union Fights Parent Trigger Laws in California

When a school is failing, it seems reasonable that parents can effect change in that school. In California, the Parent Trigger law enables parents to overhaul a school if it is failing their children.

Why Online Education is Growing

Technology is changing the way Americans live their daily lives, and when it comes to education, it's opening up new and exciting opportunities for students, and at a rapid pace. A recent Gallup Poll has found that online education is rated best for value and options. Although sometimes viewed as education's red headed stepchild, the truth is that online education provides access and options at all levels of education.

Department of Education is 94 Percent Non-Essential Employees

The federal government is now into its second day of being shut down, which means different things for different people. For the average American, not much is going to change. However, there is one governmental department which touches many (too many, some would argue) lives: The Department of Education. The question is will a government shutdown really make a difference to the majority of American families who have school age children?
