Restoring American Exceptionalism – Oklahoma Townhall

January 07, 2012 J

American 15-year-olds rank 35th out of 57 countries in math and literacy! America shouldn’t be 35th in anything. It's time to Restore American Exceptionalism!

Rather than protecting and promoting failure, let's put our kids first. Let's do even more to support the teachers and the schools that are succeeding, but let's hold those that are failing firmly accountable. Whether it’s a private school, a charter school, or a traditional public school, parents should have the right to choose the school that will do the best job educating their children. Every child deserves the best education we can give them.

Restoring American exceptionalism to our schools and putting kids first isn't a Republican issue or a Democrat issue. It's an American issue. Join the conversation today! Attend Oklahoma's School Choice Week event on Jan. 24. See details below and click here to reserve your free ticket.

The Summit comes to Oklahoma!

November 11, 2011 J

Getting from Oklahoma to Washington, DC, can be tough at times. Hey, flights are pricey and that 1,300-mile drive takes a while. So that's why AFP-Oklahoma brought the 2011 Defending The American Dream Summit to the Twin Territories.

On Friday, Nov. 11, AFP-Oklahoma was honored to have the featured presentation at the weekly meeting of the High Noon Club in Oklahoma City.

The luncheon featured a full PowerPoint presentation of the Summit by State Director Stuart Jolly. In that presentation, he shared every bit about the Summit that he could, from the various breakout sessions to the great list of speakers that appeared at the event. Attendees at the weekly meeting were able to see a lot of great photos from the event that gave them a good idea what went down at the Summit.

The 2011 Defending The American Dream Summit has come and gone. As such, we'd like to send you some links showing all the fun we had! Click here for a comprehensive collection of photos from both days of the event!

And we also have some video we want you to see. During the Summit, the OccupyDC group tried to disrupt things. They were unsuccessful at derailing the event itself, but did their best to make their presence known. Below are two videos worth check out showing you what they were up to:

We hope you enjoy these images from a truly great weekend in our nation's capital!

The 2011 Summit recap: What you missed

November 10, 2011 J

The 2011 Defending The American Dream Summit was an amazing experience. If you were able to make it, great! We loved having you there. If not, you missed quite a time! Here’s a quick rundown for you of the Summit so you can get caught up on the weekend, which was marked by a series of great breakout session, speakers and protests from OccupyDC, which did their best to disrupt our weekend but were unsuccessful.

Friday, Nov. 4th
It was a beautiful, albeit cool, day in the District. The DC Convention Center was the scene of the Summit, just blocks north of the National Mall. Events started early in the morning, with breakout sessions up and going by 10am.
