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.

CSE President Paul Beckner's Letter to the Senate on H.R. 3916, The Telephone Excise Tax Repeal Bill

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 This is an onerous tax that affects 95 percent of Americans and must be repealed.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

BY James C. Miller III

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.

Bids Reported for Trash of Microsoft Ally

BY John Schwartz

It was about two weeks ago when Blanca Lopez offered the two cleaning workers in her office building a little cash for trash, according to the cleaning company. Lou DeLeon, general manager of P&R Enterprises, gave this account: Lopez offered about $ 50 each for the paper coming out the door at the Association for Competitive Technology (ACT). Just bring it over to the offices of Upstream Technologies, on the same floor, she said. When they declined, she sweetened her offer to $ 500 apiece--with an extra $ 200 for the supervisor. They refused again.

Increased spending, not tax reductions, have helped put the pinch on the state budget, House Minority Leader Richard Morgan told a conservative group lobbying the Legislature on Tuesday. "Some people would like to blame the tax cuts while our side was on the watch," Morgan told about 400 people attending a rally sponsored by Citizens for a Sound Economy. "I would be happy for them to try to make that argument.
