Wisconsin parents fight the transgender lobby, while California is going in the other direction.
Fourteen Wisconsin parents represented by Alliance Defending Freedom and the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, public interest legal firms, have filed a lawsuit in an attempt to stop a policy they say “instructs teachers to assist and encourage children in adopting transgender identities without notifying—and possibly while deceiving—parents.
Well, it's no way to run a railroad, but illiteracy pays. $50 million.
The State of California was sued by a class of primary school children. The court found the State of California 'guilty' of not equipping the children with basic reading skills.
Who got the $50 million?
It wasn't the children who today do not have basic reading skills and have to face life in a highly competitive world... unable to read.Read more
Recently heard at the DNC Convention in San Francisco;
"You’ve got to be ready to take a punch," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. "And therefore, you have to be ready to throw a punch. For the children. Throw a punch for the children."
I would like to thank Nancy for her very sage advice which should be directed to those of us who support CaliforniaSchoolChoice.org, One of their proposed solutions to improve education is a California initiative which will allow parents to take back the authority over their children’s education from the government by allowing them to enroll their precious children in the public, private or religious school of their choice while using their share of the state’s educational budget. It even provides accumulated dollars to be used for University or Vocational training. Under this proposed bill, competition will encourage innovation and improvement in our public-school systems. Now that’s what I call throwing a punch for the children. Thank You Nancy.Read more

California School Choice Foundation is a California Nonprofit Corporation. Application for certification of tax-exempt status under IRS 501(c)(4) pending. Contributions are not currently tax-deductible.
We the undersigned find and declare all of the following:
Our future depends on the education of our children from kindergarten through high school and, for those students who desire it, the completion of college or vocational education.
Yet many parents feel trapped by under-performing schools and without any ability to save for college and/or vocational training.
The State of California currently spends about $17,000 per pupil on K–12 public education, including federal, state, and local funds and over $97 billion to educate about 6,000,000 children in public schools. The State provides most of the money for schools pursuant to the minimum funding guarantee in the California Constitution (Proposition 98), about $12,000 per pupil per year.
Some public schools are excellent, and some are simply terrible. Overall pupil performance, measured in any number of ways, shows decline, not improvement. Yet per-pupil spending by the state has increased by more than $5000 in the last decade. This fact proves that just more money is not the answer to our education problem.
There are many nonprofit private schools and public charter schools that provide quality education to our children, usually at much lower cost per pupil than the state.
Parents, not the government, should have the right to choose what educational opportunities are best for their children and to set aside any savings derived from that choice for their children’s college or vocational education.
For parents to have choice in their child’s education, there must be a variety of educational options within their community – including but not limited to public, charter, private, parochial schools, and homeschooling.
When schools compete with one another for student enrollment and education dollars, the quality of education will improve, and innovation will take place.
Therefore, we hereby petition for the passage of School Choice legislation in California to do all of the following:
Create an Education Savings Account for each school age child in every district across the state, upon the request of that child’s parents.
Fund the Education Savings Account with the amount the state designates each year per pupil for K-12 public education, currently about $12,000 at no additional cost to taxpayers.
Empower parents to use the funds in the Education Savings Account to enroll, pay tuition and/or other eligible education expenses for each child in any eligible school of their choice.
Allow any unused funds in the Education Savings Account at the end of the school year to be rolled over tax-free for future school years, and upon graduation from high school, allow any savings in the child’s account to be used for college and/or vocational education expenses.
