From standards to tests to bathroom usage, the federal government has placed mandate after mandate on the education of your children. This has been happening for decades, and there’s no end in sight.
The organization United States Parents Involved in Education (USPIE) wants your help to highlight what is happening to your children in your community. Have you or your child been affected by government intrusion into education? What about a neighbor or friend? USPIE wants to hear your stories! USPIE is asking you to create a three-minute video telling your story about the harm government has caused to your child’s education. The best videos will used on the USPIE website and may be published on online in other national media outlets.. The rules for the contest are here. The deadline is Friday, July 22, so get your camera rolling and share your story.
USPIE is made up of leaders from the Stop Fed Ed movement. Its mission is to restore “local control of education by eradicating federal intrusion.” If you are interested in learning more about the Stop Fed Ed movement, then visit uspie.org. You can find your state representative at http://www.uspie.org/state-chapters.html.
The Heartland Institute will host a USPIE event at our offices in Arlington Heights, Illinois on Wednesday, October 12. Details for the event will be coming soon.
