Founding Principles of Public Education
Thomas Jefferson is Rolling in his Grave.
Maine Department of Education cites Thomas Jefferson as one of the “great architects of American public education.” See 2019 revised “Maine Learning Results for Social Studies”. Would Jefferson lobby for school choice and a Parents Bill of Rights? Absolutely! Thomas Jefferson proclaimed the state should give parents direct and ultimate control over how their children are educated. He said, “Any authority of the government, other than by the parents within each ward…is a belief against all experience.” He claimed Government could no better manage a child’s education than they could, by stating, “our farms, our mills, and merchants’ stores.”
Thomas Jefferson would never have allowed centralized government control as we are experiencing today.
Contact your local elected officials and request their support for school choice and the Parents’ Bill of Rights.

Maine State Attorney General’s Civil Rights Team Project (CRTP)
Say "No" to Government Youth Movements
Maine Parents' Rights In Education is opposed to Attorney General’s Civil Rights Team Project (CRTP). The AG's office directs minors to engage in political activism fueled by school bias training. This program falsely uses “Civil Rights” as a shield for political indoctrination. Local law enforcement agencies must be alerted. Note: Valuable Civil Rights Team Project documents, Resource Materials.
School Choice Benefits the Entire Community
School Choice, Kids First
The Maine Policy Institute, for years a trusted authority, provides research-based analysis of school choice. School pandemic policies dramatically increased families' demands for flexibility and options. Instead, Maine’s 130th legislator failed to pass LDs 380 and 430 removing the cap on the number of public charter schools, and virtual public charters. School choice provides the competition necessary to optimize all educators' exceptional talents.
Please call your local elected officials and request their support for school choice and a Parents’ Bill of Rights.

Deep Blue Abyss of Maine Department of Education Bureaucracy
Did the federal and state departments of education scheme to protect their investment in a future with remote learning?
On April 21, 2021, the federal government approved and funded Maine’s ARP/ESSR application. It states, “Maine is one of eleven States that received funding from the U.S. Department of Education’s 'Rethink K-12 Education Models Funding'." Under the federal "Rethink" umbrella, Maine named their state project, “Rethinking Remote Education Ventures (RREV).” Naturally, the academic research showing remote learning as a failure threatened the investment made by both state and federal parties. After the 2021 fall student assessment data was analyzed, instead of being transparent about what was needed to help students recover from school closures, the Maine Department of Education censored the data by burying it in their deep blue bureaucratic abyss.
Keep in mind, "Maine's low-income students have fallen further behind their peers over the past 4 years" prior to the pandemic.
Please read these publications listed below and file Freedom of Information Acts for your district’s Fall assessment scores. Request they ignore the unresponsive documents and simply provide the data.
The brand-new assessment scores show a statewide 85% proficiency rate, so why are budgets using funds “to catch kids up” if they never fell behind? Did the Maine DOE use the regression of students as a method to capture a low baseline for each student? These out-of-nowhere and completely questionable assessments across the state are just in time for the powerful and unchecked unions to take communities to the cleaners with year over raises around a reported 7% or more. Do you receive an almost 25% raise over three years?
Maine students require their parents to flex their rights to protect their future. School boards are now mostly owned and operated by union endorsed candidates whose job is to be sounding boards for the public and eliminate any oversight. This allows bureaucracy and union operatives to go to work indoctrinating and grooming instead of enlightening Maine’s youth. Hence, the increased school board attendance around the state.
