This report card was designed “to evaluate the education laws and policies in place in each state.” The study used three forms of criteria for evaluation to find states in which schools: Elevate teaching, Empower Parents, and Spend Wisely & Govern Well.

Chicago Teachers Union Pushes Class Warfare

The Chicago Teacher’s Union is at it again. The group’s radical president Karen Lewis, known for leading the teachers in their first strike in a generation, fancies herself as a warrior for union rights rather than a protector of education. Her latest battle cry? Class warfare.

Teachers Union Educate Kids on 'Trickle Down' Economics

Teachers are given the incredible responsibility of educating children. Around the world, parents entrust these men and women to spend their days educating children with the expectation that they will stick to the curriculum and leave personal beliefs at home. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Next month, the film Won’t Back Down will hit theaters around America. It is the story of a mother who will not accept that her child will be subjected to an unsatisfactory education simply because she comes from a financially disadvantaged background. It is a look at school reform in America, and will put Parent Trigger Laws front and center ahead of the upcoming election season.

Pennsylvania Students and Parents Rally for School Choice in Harrisburg

Ever since Pennsylvania’s Senate voted in favor of school choice last month by passing SB1, the pressure on the state House of Representatives to send this important bill to Governor Corbett’s desk has been steadily increasing. Yesterday that pressure was ratcheted up even further when some 2,000 students, parents and other school choice supporters flooded the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg demanding educational freedom.

Why we Need to Fight the Teachers Unions, from New York to Pennsylvania

   It is a truth universally acknowledged that parents and teachers want children to receive the best education they can possibly have, yet this universally acknowledged truth is sadly incorrect. There are certainly some teachers who wish to impart knowledge to their students and prepare them for a successful and fulfilling life; Teachers unions, however, are preventing this fundamental goal. American public schools continue to produce students who continue to fall further behind their peers in other industrialized countries.

Key Vote YES On HB130 To Prohibit Collective Bargaining Between Teachers Union and Local School Boards in Tennessee

Dear Representative, FreedomWorks is a leading grassroots organization with over one million members fighting for lower taxes, less government and more freedom. I am writing to urge you to vote YES on HB130 which would prohibit collective bargaining between teacher unions and local school boards also referred to as LEAs in Tennessee. Introduced by Rep. Debra Young Maggart (District 45), this bill would bring cost effectiveness and competiveness back to the local school systems.
