At This Moment: Whose Education is This, Anyway?

Whose education is this anyway? Whose children are they?

In a Chicago Tribune commentary piece, my good friend Daniel Coupland shares why we need choices in education. 

He states a glaring problem:

Most Americans know by now that K-12 teachers are underpaidoverworked and underappreciated, but few acknowledge the fact that they are also overregulated. Even now, teachers are hamstrung by rigid, top-down mandates from government administrators and policymakers far removed from local schools and communities. 

Let’s legalize freedom with choice in education to liberate our country, state and schools from the grip of bureaucracy and mediocrity. “So what’s the solution?” my friend asks in the commentary. His solution is one word: “Freedom.”

I strongly recommend reading and sharing Daniel’s commentary found at this link.

I am co-founder and CEO of the John Adams Academies, an institution that is perhaps the most unique charter school system in America today. The Academies’ curriculum is designed to give its students an American Classical Leadership Education®. This is an education that pursues truth, beauty and goodness and turns its scholars outward in search of those whom they can serve in becoming servant leaders. This website is dedicated to sharing the concepts of an American Classical Leadership Education with its readers so that more citizens can benefit from the truth, virtue and wisdom of the past. The thoughts and opinions I share on this page are my personal views.
