Will Conservatives in Georgia Step Up For Education?

I have some very exciting news to share. Hillsdale College (if you are a conservative, you should know what Hillsdale is) is issuing RFP’s for interested parents and community advocates who want to start Hillsdale backed Charter Schools.

This is a prime opportunity in Georgia for a well rounded, classical education for K-12 — the type of education conservatives bitch and moan about and send their kids to private schools for.

Charter schools are a great way for conservatives to get quality education within a quasi-public school framework and make it available to those who are not rich enough for private school.

If you are a conservative and want to impact the lives of children positively, you really need to check this out (PDF) and consider stepping up to the plate.

The actual link for the RFP is here.

    A Hillsdale school would not receive federal tax dollars & would teach the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence…..along with three R’s.

    Hillsdale College is a highly respected private liberal arts college in Michigan known for tough academics. Most people like me who grew up in the area are very familiar with the school. I also was recruited heavily by the school to play sports. Did not go via size and wanted to play D-1. Trust me this is a very good school by any measurement.

    … Because of the College’s anti-slavery reputation and its role in founding the new Republican party (Professor Edmund Fairfield was a leader at the first convention), many notable speakers visited its campus during the Civil War era, including Frederick Douglass and Edward Everett, who preceded Lincoln at Gettysburg.
    Hillsdale’s modern rise to prominence occurred in the 1970s. On the pretext that some of its students were receiving federal loans, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare attempted to interfere with the College’s internal affairs, including a demand that Hillsdale begin counting its students by race. Hillsdale’s trustees responded with two toughly worded resolutions: One, the College would continue its policy of non-discrimination. Two, “with the help of God,” it would “resist, by all legal means, any encroachments on its independence.”
    Following almost a decade of litigation, the U.S. Supreme Court decided against Hillsdale in 1984. By this time, the College had announced that rather than complying with unconstitutional federal regulation, it would instruct its students that they could no longer bring federal taxpayer money to Hillsdale. Instead, the College would replace that aid with private contributions…..
