"Stupid in America" A Message from John Stossel on America's Failing Schools

Yesterday, FreedomWorks hosted a special guest, the Fox Business Network’s John Stossel to take over our Twitter account and discuss his new book, “No They Can’t.”  During this special event, I had the opportunity to ask Mr. Stossel questions about something near and dear to my heart: education reform.  Mr. Stossel is a libertarian who came to fame on ABC’s 20/20, but came around to libertarianism later in life after witnessing the failures of big government.

Don't Let These Representatives Kill Charter Bill SB 2401 in Mississippi

Urgent Action NeededSB 2401, which would establish charter schools in the state, recently passed the Senate, but now it must pass the House. Charter schools operate outside of the education establishment, which means they can institute a dynamic curriculum that meets the needs of individual students. Unfortunately, some House members have chosen to ignore the facts and are instead going to great lengths to prevent this reform from taking place.

A Big Step For Louisiana Children

One Step Closer to School Choice Reform in Louisiana After many long hours of debate on the House floor last Friday, H.B. 974 and H.B.976 (two of the most controversial and boldest pieces of legislation) passed by large margins despite establishment and union opposition.  Their success marked a huge victory for Governor Jindal’s bold education reform plan, and for hundreds of thousands of students currently attending failed Louisiana schools.

Urgent Action Needed in South Carolina School Choice Fight

State Representative Jenny Horne (R-94) is standing with the education establishment to block school choice.With all the evidence that South Carolina’s public school system is badly in need of reform, why is Rep. Jenny Horne standing in the way of school choice? Rather than support H.4894, a school choice bill that would benefit her constituents in Charleston and Dorchester counties, Rep. Horne is attempting to delay a vote on H.4894 in a blatant and cynical maneuver to kill this much-needed legislation.

Help Bring Charter Schools to Mississippi

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 22% of Mississippi 4th graders are proficient in math and reading, and only 19% of 8th graders are proficient in those same subjects. These numbers demonstrate the abject failure of an entrenched education establishment, and that’s why FreedomWorks is helping Governor Bryant bring free-market solutions to the education system. The governor is committed to reform, but he needs our help to get it done.

Where Art Thou, Governor Corbett

What do Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, South Carolina Governor Nicki Haley, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, and Mississippi Governor Bryant all have in common?  The answer:  They are all in full support of statewide education reform. In fact, Governor Daniels has successfully passed reform legislation in Indiana.  Which brings me to wonder, where is Governor Tom Corbett of Pennsylvania?
