FreedomWorks Backs School Choice in Pennsylvania

FreedomWorks field coordinator Joe Hilliard joins advocates for school choice in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. FreedomWorks is part of a coalition of citizen groups supporting the efforts of local leaders to start a charter school to compete with the government-run schools in the area. The Allentown Morning Call covered the press conference, organized by Chris Hoenscheid. More than 40 people attended the press conference in support of opening the Thomas Paine Charter School in Catasauqua, PA. The Catasauqua Area School Board voted the project down earlier last month. But Hoenscheid plans to resubmit an application for the 2009-10 school year.   Here is the article: http://www.mcall.com/news/local/all-b3-5charter.6337860apr02,0,4181634.story

Education Should Come Before Ideology, Politics

BY Max Pappas

From coast to coast, families, because of their ZIP code, have little choice but to send their children to the failing and sometimes dangerous government schools in their neighborhood. Those with the means to do so —like most members of Congress —can free their children from these failing schools. Those of more modest incomes are not as fortunate —unless, that is, they live in one of the increasing number of states allowing and encouraging school choice.

SMART Grants Hold Promise for Low Income Students

BY Kim Trobee

A new program from Washington is offering federal money to low income third and fourth year college students who are studying the hard sciences. They’re called “SMART” grants and Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming says they offer incentives to college students from underserved communities with the goal of getting them into high tech fields. “The need for national security calls for math, science, engineering and some form of language capabilities that we’re lacking in the present time and we see an even greater gap in the future.”

Emergency School Vouchers Likely for Katrina Victims

BY Karla Dial

A month after Hurricane Katrina displaced 372,000 schoolchildren and laid waste to portions of three Gulf Coast states, students headed back to class in one of Louisiana's hardest-hit districts, Jefferson Parish. But for thousands more, scattered across dozens of states, relief in the form of emergency school vouchers appeared to be the most likely way they would start making the journey back to normalcy.

Legislators are not to blame

BY George C. Cross

In early August 2005, Libby Sternberg, executive director of Vermonters for Better Education, declared in her weekly newsletter, "Wanda Haynes of Middletown Springs is closing her child care business in two weeks as a direct result of her local public school expanding into the pre-K business." Since that date, Ms Sternberg, Rob Roper, state director of FreedomWorks, and others have cleverly tried to connect the closing of this child care business with the enactment of a small paragraph in the budget bill passed by the Legislature in its final days and signed into law by Gov. Douglas. As that old commentator says, "And now the rest of the story."

Vouchers for New Orleans

This article originally ran in the National Review Online on Sept. 15, 2005. There is a second rescue urgently needed in the terrible aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and one that is long overdue: saving New Orleans school kids from their broken public-school system. The tragedy of the storm provides America with a golden opportunity, and the answer lies in the tens of billions of dollars of federal emergency spending. Let's create emergency school-choice vouchers for the children displaced by Katrina.
