I’m so happy to be going to Houston.

I can’t wait to hear from so many remarkable individuals, and to have the opportunity to speak about the importance of waking up to defend our families,  our Constitutional rights, and our children’s opportunities to have a happy, classical education– all things which current “education reforms” have harmed or seek to harm.

 

The conference will be live streamed on January 29-30, 2016. The registration link for virtual or actual conference attendance is  here.

A press conference hosted by U.S. Parents Involved in Education (USPIE) will take place at the #AboutTheChild Conference, where a panel from USPIE will roll out its campaign to #StopFedEd.

A Twitter rally is scheduled to promote the issues that the conference will address.

Join the Twitter rally tonight:  Sunday, January 10–  in support of Houston’s upcoming #AboutTheChild Conference and everything that it’s about.

This is going to be good.
