Come Out Friday!: Democrats Who Want to Stop Cheating Kids Like Me
Earlier, I told you to save the date for a great event my friends at the Education Policy Center are putting on. Well, if you’re looking for anything to do this Friday, here are the details:
Last month, a group of national and Colorado Democratic leaders met in Denver to vocally challenge the teachers union and the status quo in education. Organizer of the event and Democrats for Education Reform executive director Joe Williams will discuss the education reform movement within the Democratic Party, and his book Cheating Our Kids: How Politics and Greed Ruin Education.

Tune in at 6:15 pm MST.
The name for the event is “Democrats are Standing up to the Teachers Unions: Can this be True?” Kids like me aren’t going to get all the public and private school choices we need, unless we convince political leaders in both major parties – Republican and Democrat – to join us in the cause. It’s exciting to see Mr. Williams carry the banner for school choice and reform on the Democrat side, while others in the Republican Party do the same. Because nobody should be cheating us of the opportunities provided by a high-quality education.
Still haven’t been convinced to come? Well, guess what? Maybe it’s because you haven’t heard the best news of all: My mom and dad said I could come on Friday. I hope if you’re in the area you can make it, too. If you happen to see a 5-year-old boy with or without binoculars, it’s probably me.
