Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army. – Edward Everett
Education is the great equalizer in American society. Education is what molds, what builds the foundation, for our next generation of American leaders. Public education is the silver bullet, the single most powerful institution, to break the cycle of poverty and level the playing field in our country.
Our public schools, and the skills and values we instill in our young people, are protecting the very ideals of liberty in this next generation. From the very truths that are made self-evident by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence to the new nation brought forth on this continent as referenced by Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg, the work of public school teachers safeguards the core of our liberty.
