A new report from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) shows that parents are looking for alternatives to state-led public education, and are shifting towards more traditional methods to educate their children.

Charter Schools Up for a Fight in New York City

Choice creates competition, and competition will lead to public schools losing their monopolies on young minds.  This of course is a very good thing, as it means better educations for every American child.

Federal Government Punishes Louisiana Children

The U.S. Department of Justice must not have much going on these days. There aren’t really any other conclusions to draw considering that they’re spending their time working on keeping children in failing schools. That’s right, the Louisiana Department of Justice has sued the state of Louisiana over school vouchers.

Liberal Group Bars Alabama Schoolhouse Door

The civil rights issue of our era is improving America’s schools. It is essential that all kids, rich and poor, have the chance to achieve the American dream.To work toward that end, Gov. Robert Bentley recently signed the Alabama Accountability Act. The school choice package allows families with children attending failing schools to receive tax credits to help pay for attendance at a different public school or private school.

Common Core Craziness

Common Core just keeps getting weirder. Today, we have two juxtaposed pieces of information. One that shows students being indoctrinated into praising Common Core, the other showing how clearly Common Core fails to educate children.

American Federation of Teachers vs. Dearborn

The American Federation of Teachers is a little bit clingy. Who can blame them, I suppose, when they are losing left and right? When local affiliates decide to disentangle themselves from the AFT in favor of more local control, the AFT has a very hard time letting go. This is currently the case in Dearborn, Michigan, as the Dearborn Federation of School Employees has decided to strike out on their own. The AFT is not letting them go without a fight.

Study Shows Black Parents Support School Choice

America prides itself on being a society in which all are created equal. A country in which we are, as Martin Luther King, Jr. had hoped, people who are not “judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Still, though, there is one major frontier in which all is not equal, and that is in education. Public education in America is such that, in many instances, the quality of a child’s education is determined by where that child lives.

Georgia Takes Back Some Academic Freedom

In Georgia, academic freedom is a mixed bag. Legislators in that state have accepted Common Core standards, which gives the federal government unprecedented control over testing standards in individual states. As one of 22 states in the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers,  they handed over some of their local control to federal overseers. However, Georgia took steps this week to maintain some level autonomy.
