Retake Education

Help Save Our Educational System

Mission Statement: Part III – What It’ll Take

Tuition costs + assorted fees (books, supplies, etc) come to about $2000 a semester. Therefore, to avoid putting myself in hock to the federal government, I need to raise about $4000 a year. By my reckoning, this shouldn’t be difficult. Given the number of conservatives (and Americans in general) who are upset about the direction our educational system is heading, I would think it would be relatively easy to find 4000 people that are disgusted enough to donate $1 each to help change that system. The tricky part is getting enough people to read this blog.

Therefore, donations are wonderful. I truly appreciate every single dollar that is donated. But even more so I appreciate word of mouth. You can help simply by sending an email to any person you know that you know who feels the same way you do, who wants to help make this country great again. Think about how many people there are in this country. Think about how many are upset enough about our educational system and the way in which it is brainwashing our children into socialism. Think about how easy it should be to find 4000 of those people who are willing to donate $1 a year to make the educational system in this country that much more conservative. I think this could work.

If you happen upon this blog and want to know more or want to contact me, please feel free to do so, I’d be happy to provide more information about my beliefs and ideals. As potential investors, you’re certainly entitled to background on your investment. I’m not the government. I don’t force you to give me your money and then tell you you’ve no right to know what it’s being spent on.

Thanks (and tell your friends!)

  1. After having read your mission statements and your six most recent posts, I ask; would you be in favor of a bill/resolution/policy proposal to make the US Constitution and Bill of Rights mandatory core curriculum for middle school-high school students? I think I can guess what your response might be, but I want it in writing, so to speak. Also I extend an invitation to you to join TeamSarah.org. Even if you are not a big fan of hers there is a group there dedicated to education issues and would be a good place for you to network.

    • Hi James – as you would expect, yes, I would certainly be in favor of such a curriculum. I think our young people and our country would be in a lot better shape if everyone was required to study the documents that make up the foundation of our society. I think too many folks emerge from our educational system these days with only a vague understanding of their rights and liberties, and then as they go through life that understanding is corrupted by the media and politicians, to the point where people seem to think, for instance, that “health care” is somehow a right ensured by the Constitution.

      Thank you for coming by and commenting! I’ll definitely check out TeamSarah.org.

  2. Hi Johnny,
    As a conservative social studies teacher in middle school grades, in a parochial school, I promise that I teach both constitution and Bill of Rights thoroughly. I also teach basic political philosophy beginning with Socrates and Plato, through Cincinnatus.

    I wish I could spare a buck, but not right now. May I suggest you twitter? Get that word out!

    I’m uncertain what grades or subjects you are interested in, but let me make a couple links that you may find interesting:

    Good luck in grad school!

    • Hi Kathianne – thank you for coming by and commenting. Always great to hear that I won’t be alone out there when I finally get into a school. Sounds like you’ve got quite the curriculum there, good for you. That’s got to be a challenge, but nothing wrong with that.

      I’m mostly looking to start out in early elementary, first or second grades, but once I get my feet under me I’m going to try to move toward either middle or high school history.

      Thanks so much for the links, I’ll check them out, best of luck with your teaching and thanks again for stopping by, hope to see you here again soon!
