While expanding parental choice is a paramount objective on the right, a key question is whether choice alone is enough, or if results-based accountability ought to be sustained and strengthened, too.

Speak Out For 1st Amendment

mentioning John Villasenorvia The Post And Courier
Thursday, September 21, 2017

History tells us repeatedly that you cannot have a functioning democracy without freedom of speech and expression, a right guaranteed in this nation by the First Amendment to the Constitution. Yet a recent survey of student opinion on a large number of U.S. college campuses finds that “freedom of expression is deeply imperiled on U.S. campuses.”

What's The Story?

featuring Shelby Steelevia The Weekly Standard
Monday, September 25, 2017

If I were a Republican strategist, which I’m pleased to say I’m not, I would pay especial attention to Shelby Steele’s op-ed “Why the Left Can’t Let Go of Racism” in the August 27 issue of the Wall Street Journal. Toward the close of his article, Steele writes that “the great problem for conservatives is that they lack the moral glibness to compete with liberalism’s ‘innocence’ ”—innocence, in this case, from the evil of racism and social injustice generally. Steele then goes on briefly to suggest that “reality” should be the “informing vision” of conservatism.”
