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.
