Failure without Consequences for Public Schools

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results." This common-sense aphorism, sometimes attributed to Albert Einstein, aptly identifies the problem with the current level of state oversight of public schools. When a school or an entire school district fails to meet the state's performance goals, there are no dramatic changes - just different government officials doing the same thing over and over again (and expecting different results).

As many as 134 million Americans currently have access to the Internet and conservative estimates have that total increasing to 197 million by 2003.

Solution For Failing Schools

Today the Alabama Department of Education announced its list of failing schools for 2000, identifying which schools will be taken over by the state. Alabama Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) has taken a steadfast position that the best way to save failing schools is to break up the public school monopoly and use vouchers to give parents control of their child's education. But, a state takeover promises nothing but more of the same.

Highest SAT Scores Ever for Alabama Students

BY Bill Poovey

Alabama student scores on the Stanford Achievement Test matched or exceeded the national average in every grade tested for the first time, but six poorly performing public schools are headed for state intervention. About 463,000 students in grades 3-11 took the Stanford 9, with the scores released Thursday being used for the fifth straight year to measure the academic performance of their schools and school systems.

June 21, 2000 Dear Senator: CSE recruits, educates, motivates and mobilizes a growing army of volunteer activists to fight for less government, lower taxes and more freedom. On behalf of our 250,000 members, I urge you to vote in favor of H.R. 3916 “The Telephone Excise Tax Repeal Bill.” This is an onerous tax that affects 95 percent of Americans and must be repealed.

Perseverance Triumphs Over IRS

Call it another profile in courage. A citizen stands up to political assaults and government intimidation, pays a tremendous price, but is vindicated. That citizen is Jeff Eisenach, and his story needs to be told.

Stop the Exploitation of Our Legal System

The 40,000 members of California Citizens for a Sound Economy today urged Senator Dianne Feinstein to support Senate Bill 353, The Class Action Fairness Act. If passed, this bill would allow individuals to move a class action lawsuit from state to federal court. Many class actions on the state level provide consumers with useless coupons or nominal financial recoveries, while providing their lawyers with millions of dollars.
