Education

Welcome to our education page.  We offer an exciting array of resources that explore ideas that bring Conservatives from all walks of life together and offer counterpoints to left-wing ideas that are not being presented in our school system or in the main stream news.  

For parents, we recommend resources to teach school-age children about the history of freedom, patriotism and free enterprise.

Young children need to be read to.  They love to hear the same stories over and over again.  As they begin to read well independently, children still benefit from being read to.  It is a bonding experience and a chance to discuss the story. End the reading while all are still enjoying the time together so that the children want to return to the activity in the future. Book worms may prefer to read on their own but be sure to make time to let them tell you about the book.
