Top Story of the Week

‘Parents Bill of Rights’ Passes NC Senate

“These have been challenging times for families across North Carolina. The pandemic exposed our schools’ inability to pivot to virtual learning, derailed academic progress, isolated our children, and led to declines in our children’s social and emotional well-being. Meanwhile, some school board members and administrators disparaged parents for questioning policy decisions and marginalized those who expressed concerns over an increasingly politicized curriculum.”

John Locke Foundation, Apr 19, 2022

Does this bill go far enough to insure parents rights in the public schools?  You decide!

In this video, Vicki Simons of South Carolina, shares a powerful and eloquent speech to members of her county board.

QUOTE  OF THE WEEK

We must always take sides.  Neutrality helps the oppressor , never the victim.  Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

-Eli Wiesel
