My friend Hugh Hewitt and I just hosted a tele-townhall about Hillsdaleâ€™s Barney Charter School Initiative! We enjoyed the discussion very much and hope you were able to join us. If you missed the event you can see the video recording here: www.hillsdale.edu/townhall.
As we discussed, K-12 education in America has become a dismal failure under the influence of state and federal bureaucrats and powerful teachers unions.
Thatâ€™s why Hillsdale launched the Barney Charter School Initiativeâ€”to offer young Americans an alternative when it comes to K-12 educationâ€”one that includes a classical curriculum and promotes civic virtue and moral character.
We are starting to see remarkable success in this program. There are already 17 Hillsdale-affiliated classical K-12 charter schools operating nationwide with additional schools opening each year.
Thatâ€™s why we must expand our efforts to reach more states and reach out to assist with the establishment of more K-12 classical charter schools across the country. This will impact thousands of young livesâ€”in fact, to date over 8,000 students are enrolled at schools established with the help of the Barney Charter School Initiative.
And Iâ€™m pleased to announce that the Barney Foundation and friends of the College have issued challenge grants amounting to a total of $748,000 that will match your gift toward the Barney Initiative Endowment dollar-for-dollar.
