Here’s what I learned about how schools manipulate kids for politics when I asked several parents to share experiences learned during the Oklahoma teacher walkout.
Democrats and their allies among the teacher activists are following the playbook outlined by Saul Alinsky in ‘Rules for Radicals.’
A large chunk of teachers appears to have no interest in educating themselves about spending, but seem instead content to parrot false union talking points.
The striking teachers — and politicians caving to them — lack a rudimentary knowledge of the real reasons teacher salaries aren’t as high as they want and their school books and materials are old and scant.
Teacher strikes are firmly in the National Lampoon ‘if-you-don’t-buy-this-magazine-we’ll-kill-this-dog’ school of negotiating.
We calculated how much the taxpayers of Illinois, New Jersey, Kentucky, California, or Connecticut might benefit if some public school families were given school choice.
Two of Colorado’s largest school districts are engaging in very public fights over the future of K-12 education. Their outcomes will affect families across the country.
Act like teachers who would like to educate my children, not pure political activists.

Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, answered an array of preposterous questions from a bunch of unserious people. It’s a reminder that politics is often tragedy.
Former DC schools chancellor Michelle Rhee is definitely a celebrity. But that’s about the only way in which she would fit with a Donald Trump administration as education secretary.
John Oliver’s most recent show repeated union talking points that parents across the political spectrum have realized are lies that consign millions of kids to a piss-poor education.
A new video project from guerrilla filmmaker James O’Keefe proves just how ideologically inconsistent many who discuss the campus rape phenomena are.
Arkansas Democrats support a bill to give traditional schools freedoms similar to those of charter schools. But only traditional schools that have to compete.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has proven himself good at defense. But our national problems require a far more cohesive offense. Or one at all.
Are North Carolina Republicans decimating schools and the poor? Let’s take a look at the derided right-wing agenda, just in K-12.
Popular lies about U.S. education certainly don’t do the kids any good. They just let the adults continue to feel comfortable while kids suffer.
