Moral Support: Take Back America, our Children’s Education
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” –Ronald Reagan
Take back American K-12 Education
The growth in size, scope, and reach of the Federal bureaucracy has had destructive effects on many areas of American life – but few have suffered as much as America’s public schools. One-size-fits-all testing standards, unionized teachers with no incentive to improve, and the influence of Progressive curriculum have all undermined the teaching of our children and grandchildren—America’s future citizens and leaders.
But Hillsdale is leading a charge to provide America’s children with classical K-12 education, including a strong civics component of history, government, and economics.
Hillsdale’s Barney Charter School Initiative is becoming one of the leading initiatives to restore the kind of education that is essential to the preservation of free government. In just three years, this initiative has helped found 15 schools – with a goal of 50 by 2022.
In fact, the Golden View Classical Academy in Golden, Colorado went from an idea to a fully-chartered school with 500 students (and a crowded waitlist) in just one year! And that’s just one story of many.
Read more about Hillsdale’s incredible education initiatives and learn how you can fuel this movement to save American K-12 education from the tide of a hundred years of progressive reforms. Nothing could be more important to preserve liberty for future generations.
