WASHINGTON, D.C. — FreedomWorks is proud to support Texas S.B.1968, which creates education grants for low-income families to allow them to choose the best education for their child.
I admit, I’ve never paid attention to Gwinnett County school board meetings. As a parent with 18 years in the school system, Gwinnett County Public Schools has exceeded my expectations.
According to the March 24 issue of the Washington Post, about 47% of schools are open for full in-person instruction. I praise Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks for the brave decision to keep schools open and provide families the choice. The unintended consequences of school closures are now coming to light with the increase in suicides, depression, food insufficiency and child abuse.
The Biden administration has made it clear it wants to expand the regulatory state and double down on government involvement in all areas of American life.
One of those areas that deserves more attention is education. Recently, the Department of Education issued a proposal that specifies two curriculum priorities for schools applying for grants through federal American History and Civics Education programs.
Today, FreedomWorks Foundation submitted a formal comment opposing a proposed rule by the Department of Education that would incentivize and provide funding for the teaching of critical race theory in America’s schools. The proposed rule would retarget existing priorities for American History and Civics Education programs to require schools seeking federal grants to teach critical race theory.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — FreedomWorks’ nationwide BEST (Building Education for Students Together) tour, a national parent-led education movement to expand education freedom and empower parents to get more involved in their children’s education, continues this week.
This month, FreedomWorks Foundation’s Regulatory Action Center and Building Education for Students Together (BEST) initiative have joined forces to push back against federal control of civics education. In a new proposed rule by the Department of Education (ED), the Biden administration is seeking to add new strings to educational grants that would require public schools to teach radical and contentious curriculum like critical race theory (CRT).
