Even as the nation shuts down to “flatten” the curve of Coronavirus cases, there can be many positives derived from this pandemic. Our Founders traveled via stagecoaches and horseback to gather to create a new nation, often having to wait for days until all could arrive. What our ancestors accomplished is incredible. Today we live in nanoseconds rushing from meeting to meeting, apologetic if we are 20 seconds late, as we become an illiterate nation looming toward another Dark Ages.

Americans sent a loud and clear message to Washington in 2016 -- cut the size of the federal government and get rid of the U.S. Department of Education.Parents across the nation are pressing for parental school choice so they can be in charge of where and how their children are educated – alternatives to federally funded and controlled public education.
