The Death Knell of Tenure

One of the greatest barriers to education reform, and the symbol of public sector intransigence, is teacher tenure. These statutes make it nearly impossible and incredibly expensive to fire poorly performing teachers. But in a landmark victory for education reform, a California judge ruled that teacher tenure and a slew of other job protection clauses are unconstitutional and should not be enforced by school districts.

Your child’s private info is being compiled into a massive database

For the last twelve months, we’ve watched conservative Republicans in Congress rail against unconstitutional NSA spying and the targeting of tea party groups by the IRS. Many question why government needs access to all of our information in the first place.

2014 Common Core Legislation Round-Up (10th Update)

BY Shane Vander Hart

Here’s the latest round of Common Core legislation that has been filed. There’s too many to do individual articles so I wanted to get caught up and mention them in one article. As a recap I’ll also mention bills I’ve already written about. I’m sure I’m also missing legislation, my apologies if I miss your state. Taking in Common Core news (and my inbox) is like drinking from a fire hose. If I missed something leave a comment and I will add it—this is a work in progress.

Will Oregon Embrace School Choice 2.0?

While our federal government readies itself for yet another year of stagnation, statehouses from coast to coast are considering plans that will dramatically impact the lives of their residents.

Failed by Public Education, These Boys Are Now Thriving Due to New Learning Opportunities

The idea of one-size-fits-all education is being discredited at the same time Common Core endorses that very idea. Common Core seeks to put schools even further into a box, and that is one of the reasons that non-traditional forms of schooling are gaining in popularity.

Victory for Louisiana School Vouchers?

DC bureaucrats are attempting once again to interfere with the educational choice of parents. Do states have the right to direct education for the students that reside there? If the latest battle in Louisiana is any indication, some in the federal government won't be happy with anything other than invasion of your rights.
