One Two Three, What Are We Voting For?

June 24, 2018 at 09:25PM -
After spending nearly a decade heavily involved in politics, it's quite a departure for me to admit I can't name all the candidates running for Lt. Governor off the top of my head. I'll be honest...I'm not even sure I can name all 27 - or however many - gubernatorial candidates. Sadly, I'm not dying about it. Why? I'm still plugged in enough to know who to go to for...

What On Earth Could Be Wrong With Student Activism?

May 06, 2018 at 05:08PM -

Parent Guest Post: What I Learned From The 2018 Teacher's Strike

April 17, 2018 at 10:09AM -
Attribution: ABC news This post was sent to me by "Elizabeth": I have never thought of myself as any kind of activist. I have never marched in protest or in support of anything that I can remember. It isn’t that I don’t have opinions – I definitely have them. There are often facets to issues or politics that I don’t understand or, more likely, haven’t taken the time to research. But...

Can A School Force Your Child To Take State Tests?

April 09, 2018 at 05:45PM -
Last week, ROPE created a website with a petition to AUDIT THE OSDE. Two things: 1.

Have we shared their information? YES. But here's the kicker - if we wanted you to sign their referendum petition, we'd ASK YOU TO...
