WILL GOV PENCE STILL KEYNOTE OUR EDUCATION FORUM? When we finalized the roster for the CER-KEMP Foundation Forum on Parent Power, little did we know we had picked a potential VP candidate to headline it! Indiana Governor Mike Pence was sought out not only because he has led a state to expand and foster great education opportunities for kids, but he has been a stalwart supporter of empowering people to take control of their own lives and help them achieve the American Dream. This is the mantra of U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), who will also lead the Kemp Forum in Indy July 27th. It remains to be seen whether we will have to change our agenda, but for now, it’s heavy, deep and real. Go to edreform.com for more information and to learn about other panelists.

CHARTER SCHOOLS HEAD TO BALLOT IN MA. Thankfully, bold-faced lies about charter school funding from The Save Our Public Schools Campaign in Massachusetts have not stopped more than 20,000 MA residents from making it known they want innovation and opportunity in education via charter schools. This is more than twice the amount of signatures needed to get charter school expansion on the November ballot!

TEACHER-LED. Much like charter schools started by educators who simply wanted more freedom and flexibility to teach, Florida teacher Wendy Bradshaw is making headlines for starting her own private school. “The idea is to meet students where they are… It’s called R School because it’s our school, literally,” Bradshaw told The Ledger.

THE NEW OPPORTUNITY AGENDA. If you’re worried about lagging student achievement, students who don’t know much about history (or lots of other things), too few choices for students, and too much bureaucracy in education, you’ll want to sign on to the New Opportunity Agenda today.
