Testimony by Vanessa Everheart, Kansas

BY Vanessa Everheart

Our youngest daughter is involved in the Parents as Teachers program, as have our previous two children. One day our “Teacher” Miss Tami came over for a screening and began asking some questions I hadn’t heard asked before. Questions about my pregnancy and birth and then she wanted information for our daughter to have a Kansas ID number. That’s when I stopped her.

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.

The U.S. Education System: What Went Wrong? Part III

A great thing about being American is that if you are unhappy with how things are run in one state, you are free to move to 49 others.  The same goes for businesses. If you are unsatisfied with one company, you can take your money to another establishment.

The Common Core Fight is On in Tennessee

Common Core is awfully unpopular for something that’s supposed to be so great. State after state is trying to keep academic freedom alive, and Tennessee is joining that list. Hearings have been held in the Volunteer State, and the fight is on.

Common Core Destroys School Choice

An important part of why many parents favor school choice is it increases the chances their kids will get into a good college. Private school students and homeschoolers regularly score higher on college entrance exams than most public school children.
