Parent Trigger Opponents Charged with Vandalism

When children are trapped in failing California schools, parents are empowered to execute the “parent trigger” option. Parent trigger has been in effect in California since 2010 and allows parents to turn an existing failing school into a charter school, replace employees, or close the school entirely. In Adelanto, California, parents chose to go this route and turn a local elementary into a charter school, and it turned into quite the debacle. Once the parent trigger was invoked, the school district defied the law. Now, finally, a charter school has been chosen to help these kids get on the path to a better education. I thought that the twists and turns of this crazy story were in the past, but alas, I was wrong.

Schools Continue to Bully Our Children

Despite the persistent objections of parents and the lack of medical evidence that there is any value to their efforts, public schools are still sending children home with fat-shaming letters for their parents.  One school in upstate New York is continuing the controversial practice - even letting fellow classmates deliver the letters to their mortified peers.

On today’s edition of the FreedomCast, Andrew Campanella joins me to discuss National School Choice Week, some of the myths and misgivings about school choice and why every conversation about education reform should begin in the living room or at the kitchen table.

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.

School Choice

America’s public schools are failing, under the influence of teachers’ unions and special interests. This monopolistic system traps students in an environment that is ill-equipped to provide them with the education they need. It’s time to put parents in charge, by giving them a real choice over how to educate their children. When schools compete and parents are free to choose, the educational benefits are amazing.

Common Core Inspires Students to ...Strive for Mediocrity

The more I learn about Common Core, the more I am reminded that the federal government fails at managing… anything. These uniform national curriculum standards are bad for students, teachers, parents, taxpayers, and really, society as a whole. The federal takeover of education needs to be immediately reversed for the sake of our future prosperity.
