Don’t Spend Spring Break With 'Christian Nation' Propagandist David Barton

Religious Right “Christian nation” advocate and pseudo-historian David Barton has a special offer for teachers: From March 15-17, he’ll be offering a conference at his home base in Aledo, Texas, “designed to equip teachers from both public and private schools with the principles and techniques that were used in early American education and thereafter for decades.”

‘School Choice Week’: Don’t Buy The Lie

Seven Days Of Deception: TGIF, ‘School Choice Week’ Is Just About Over

“National School Choice Week” is winding down, and we’ve been treated to an avalanche of propaganda for vouchers, neo-vouchers and other expressions of so-called “educational choice.”

It’s “School Choice Week.” This event was drummed up by a coterie of sectarian interest groups and right-wing ideologues that don’t like public schools and want to replace them with taxpayer-subsidized religious and other private schools.

Of course, school choice boosters don’t come right out and say that. They pretend School Choice Week is about all kinds of “educational choice” – everything from charter schools to homeschooling. Lurking behind the curtain, however, is an uncomfortable truth: This is mostly about vouchers.
