Education Reform Takes Hollywood by Storm

Education reform has often been ignored by the political establishment and the media elite, with little focus being placed on the failures of the American education system.   Despite the neglect, an underground school choice movement that unites both Right and Left has been gaining ground over the past 20 years, scoring an increasing number of victories for education reform in many states over the past two years.  As the movement continues to gain valuable momentum, school choice advocates are beginning to gain attention from Hollywood of all places.

One Myth at a Time..."Those Kids Can't Learn."

On Wednesday, I was a guest on a local radio show broadcasting out of Harrisburg.  During the 45 minute interview, I was to discuss school choice and why FreedomWorks is supporting vouchers.  Unlike many of the interviews I have done in the past, this one was downright hostile.  Not suspecting the amount of misinformation being spread about vouchers, I was caught off guard by a caller who took time to lash out about FreedomWorks stance on the issue.

Help Save Pennsylvania Children: Support School Choice

For more than a year FreedomWorks and local activists have been working hard to bring education reform to Pennsylvania. Concerned families, school choice supporters, bold legislators and even the governor himself have stood up with us against Pennsylvania's education establishment in an effort to reform the state's failing school system. Despite this bi-partisan support, some legislators have chosen to ignore the voters, failing to protect the needs of students, and instead voting to preserve union power.
