When a free and prosperous nation has citizens voting for socialists, tearing down historical monuments, and violently disrupting free speech, then something is broken.
Please join us on September 4 when the topic will be “Fixing a Broken Education System.” The discussion will focus on school choice, restoring parental control, the dangerous school-to-work pipeline, and returning to an accurate, knowledge-based curriculum designed to prepare children to be self-governing citizens in a free and sovereign nation.
