Wait Till You See What the National Education Association Is Up To
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.16.19
The first weekend in July, the National Education Association (NEA) held its annual Representative Assembly in Houston, an assembly consisting of “nearly 7,000 delegates.” The National Education Association is a “progressive” political activist organization that masquerades—er, I mean, identifies as an educational organization.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress has issued its “Nation’s Report Card” on America’s schools and the data is clear.

By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   05.13.19
Could a contrast between the American Revolution and the French Revolution be relevant to today’s conflicts? I think so.

What the World Needs Now is Some Conservative Civil Disobedience
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.22.19
Arguably, the most tyrannical, divisive, hateful, destructive political movement in the country will once again urge children and teens to disrupt government schools for an entire day on Friday April 12, 2019. And for the 23rd year in row, spineless Christians will take it on the chin. They tolerate the intolerable—not for principled reasons—but out of cowardice.
