Statement of Empower America Co-Director William J. Bennett On the Supreme Court's Decision In Pottawatomie County v. Earls

Today the United States Supreme Court held that testing students engaged in extracurricular activities for drug use does not violate the Fourth Amendment. Not only is this decision consistent with the Court's 1995 decision upholding drug testing for student-athletes, it is the correct decision, both constitutionally and for the good of students across America. As Justice Thomas put it in the majority opinion, "this policy reasonably serves the school district's important interest in detecting and preventing drug use among its students."

Empower America Applauds Supreme Court Ruling In Historic School Choice Case

Today the United States Supreme Court made history. It ruled on the most important education case since Brown v. Board of Education. In its ruling, the right of children in Cleveland to attend schools that offer a quality education, and the right of parents elsewhere to have a choice in the education of their children, were upheld.

Radical Left Supports Court Decision to Ban the Pledge in Schools

The Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy is calling on the Texas State Teachers Association PAC to demand their contributions to the Texas Freedom Network be returned. The TSTA PAC is listed on the state ethics reports as contributing thousands of dollars during 2001 to the Texas Freedom Network. The Texas Freedom Network has endorsed the 9th District Court decision prohibiting recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools. The Texas Freedom Network said of the decision, “Schoolchildren can now enjoy the religious freedom that the founding fathers intended.”

Coalition Applauds Introduction of New Jersey Auto Insurance Competition and Choice Act

The Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition applauded today's introduction of legislation to restore competition to the state's auto insurance market. "This bill is an important achievement toward modernizing the state's auto insurance laws and placing New Jersey in the mainstream of state regulation of auto insurance," said John Friedman, the Coalition's chairman. "The state's auto insurance marketplace is unstable and dysfunctional, requiring immediate reform that instills more company competition and more choices for consumers."

Policy Derailment

This week, Congress is expected to give Amtrak an emergency $210 million loan to keep the floundering passenger rail monopoly out of bankruptcy. Although unfortunate for both taxpayers and intercity rail passengers, this expected development is illustrative of not only how indiscriminately policymakers spend tax dollars, but also how short-term solutions aimed at protecting special interests take precedence over comprehensive policy initiatives.

Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic — For Teachers

As the Supreme Court struggles with the constitutionality of school choice, the case for competition simply becomes stronger. Like any monopoly, the public school system behaves in ways that harm consumers. Unfortunately, in this case that means parents and their children, who are forced to attend schools where they have little input or control. Street addresses, not quality assessments, are the determining factor for most families when it comes to education.

Let Freedom Ring

Much will be written and said over the coming days about the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in the Cleveland school voucher case, Zelman v. Simmons-Harris. There will be important commentary about the legal issues surrounding the case, and plenty of political analysis. Education analysts will talk of school performance, budgets, and spending levels. All of it will be interesting and important, but may miss the fundamental principle and issue at stake – FREEDOM.

Auto Insurance Choice and Availablity Shortage Remain Despite State Decision On State Farm in New Jersey

A state announcement delaying State Farm's application to withdraw from New Jersey's auto insurance market neither ends the threat to auto insurance availability nor remedies consumers' woeful lack of auto insurance choice, warns the Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition.
