Our goals are to assure the academic freedom of all American students, to advocate the development of critical thinking skills in all educational settings, and to facilitate academic environments which respect robust thinking and discussion in all classrooms. To achieve these goals, we will advocate for libraries of federally and state funded schools to provide materials representing a balance of various points of view regarding science, history, social studies, health, and civics classes. Our blog is filled with information, we encourage your feedback and participation.

The National Governors Association supported the implementation of Common Core Standards. If the NGA would pull that support, it would be easier for states to eliminate Common Core. This letter is open to signatures from all 50 states. The number of signatures we gather is important! My goal is to get 20,000 plus signatures. Please encourage family, friends, and neighbors to sign this letter!!!! It takes just a few seconds and will make a huge difference in the battle against Common Core. The signature area has a box for organization. Advocates for Academic Freedom would be pleased if you put Advocates for Academic Freedom in that box. Thank you for your help and support.
Join American Principles Project, Eagle Forum, HSLDA, Pioneer Institute, Michelle Malkin and others urging Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, Chair of the National Governors Association, to end the Common Core State Standards Initiative.  Through this initiative the NGA has enabled corporations and other private interests to drive education policy which has compromised the power of parents.  So we are asking parents, educators and concerned citizens to add their names with ours in order to stop the Common Core State Standards.

The Advocates for Academic Freedom home page provides a step-by-step process for donating materials to school libraries under the PHASE I button. PHASE II and PHASE III buttons include a sample step-by-step process for addressing the school board.

Advocates for Academic Freedom membership is free because we hope that you will organize parents in your neighborhood and donate two conservative magazines and one conservative newspaper to your local school library. That will cost about $200. After donating the materials, citizens should have a conversation with school administrators and school board members about using district funds to provide those materials in future years.

The fastest, easiest, and least expensive way to return traditional American values to educational settings is to insist that conservative political ideologies become part of the current-events studies that schools typically provide weekly.

Every person and situation will be different. The processes suggested under the PHASE buttons may be modified to address your specific situation.

After donating materials to the school library, please visit that library to make sure the donated items are displayed, to notify social studies and history teachers that the resources are available for their use, and to encourage your children to request access to those materials.
