Are Schools Essential?

Happy Friday! President Trump held a press conference yesterday in which he outlined his vision for the 2020 school year. Some points highlighted from his address are now available online and include these that I think might be of interest: “It is vital that parents be allowed to weigh both the benefits and risks of sending their child back to school, including the level of community spread and the makeup of their household, especially for multi-generational households.” “If schools do not reopen, funding should follow students so parents can send their child to the private, charter, religious, or home school of their choice.” “Under the President’s vision, students and parents will also be offered support to allow them to choose the school options that are best for them.” I know that a lot of people (myself included) were thrilled to hear the President advocate for school choice and funding following

Elizabeth Bartholet has Found an Ally as the Anti-Education-Choice Crowd Attempts to Rebrand Themselves

Check this out: “Parents have rights, but I believe children have rights, too—to an environment free from exploitation and to a meaningful education.” — Katherine Stewart author of The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism There’s a new article making its rounds in which Ms. Stewart, an activist, attempts to brand those of us who took on Harvard’s anti-parent’s rights campaign against unrestricted home education as “abusive” and “extremist.” The article is full of zingy one-liners and broad-stroked dismissals of those who feel that the rights of parents trump the “rights” of government as it pertains to the raising and educating of their children. The first thing Stewart does is tell her readers that she’s prepared to be brutally and unfairly attacked by extremist zealots the way that Bartholet, the Harvard professor who preceded her, allegedly was. Bartholet told me she was immediately inundated with many hundreds

What is The Great Reset?

Happy Thursday! So, not to sound alarmist or anything, but… have you guys been following what’s going on at the World Economic Forum and the IMF? It’s almost too much to explain in a simple email or blog post, so you’re probably going to want to spend some time over the weekend digging into this stuff, but I’m going to include a few recent tweets from the heads of the IMF and the WEF to get you keyed-in to what I’m talking about and why you should be concerned: 170 countries are going to finish this year with a smaller economy than they started. And we are projecting more debt, more unemployment, more inequality and more poverty. Unless we act. #TheGreatReset — Kristalina Georgieva (Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund) We need to use all the strength we have to make history show this time as #TheGreatReset, not the

As More Parents Decide to Permanently Homeschool, We’re Helping Make it Easier and More Affordable

Here we are, almost halfway through July in what has definitely been the strangest year of my life. As August approaches, a lot of states are starting to make announcements about their plans for the next school year. I’ve read articles and seen stories from across the country that show a pretty varied approach to “keep us safe” this next year. Some places, like Cherokee County, Georgia, have voted to resume school in about two weeks with very limited “COVID-19 precautions.” They have said that they will not be requiring masking for their students—a move that some parents support, and others do not. The state of Utah has started publishing its school reopening plan, with our governor making the announcement yesterday that masking will be mandatory for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors—even in rural areas where there’s no evidence of coronavirus. As a lot of us have anticipated as

“If You Try to Stop Us, We’re Coming for You!”

Happy Wednesday! How about a little mid-week insanity to reignite your passion for the cause of liberty? I stumbled on this tweet and have watched the video a half-dozen times thinking surely this can’t be real? But it is! And it is scary. Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant went on this unhinged rant about the future she and her ideological ilk envision for the United States: I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class. If you attempt again to defeat the Amazon tax, working people will go out in the thousands to defeat you. And we will not stop there. Because you see, we are fighting for far more than this tax. We are preparing the ground for a different kind of society and if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out at us and our modest demands then so be it. Because

It’s Pretty Hard to Learn from Angry Teachers

Well, we’ve arrived at the end of yet another weird week. I hope someone is keeping track of the events that have transpired every week since the first of the year—2020 is one for the record books and I’d love to see some kind of chart that gives us a week-by-week breakdown of the crazy. I’ve been busier than ever this week. We have a ton of awesome new Tuttle Twins content coming down the pipeline in the next several months, and as I was working on one particular project today, I got to thinking about the way that we treat people and how we are exercising our stewardship of the knowledge that we’ve gained through experience, hard work, and study. I’m pretty comfortable making the claim that most of the people who subscribe to these emails know a thing or two about the way the world works, and have
