The Free to Learn Coalition advocates for classrooms independent of political influence.
We do this by partnering with parent and community groups that are ready to take on political activism at their school. We provide tailored coaching, local support, planning, and resources to counter the unique challenges within a community.

While the U.S. continues to fall behind other nations in basic skills like reading, writing, math, and science, the most important decisions regarding a student’s education are being made by school administrators behind closed doors and are increasingly influenced by political activists.
Decisions about curriculum, specialized programs, and admission standards are often made without an opportunity for parents and caregivers to offer their feedback, a right protected by federal and state education laws that allows parents to review, comment on, or have their children opt-out of controversial instruction.
New programs are being implemented as early as Kindergarten, priming young minds to think in accordance with a particular ideology rather than fostering curiosity, questions, experimentation, and growth.
Rather than teaching the next generation to think critically – to formulate and defend their own opinions and beliefs – activist curriculum shut down dissenting opinions, shaming and ostracizing students who won’t conform.
There is also an unfortunate trend of schools changing or eliminating merit-based, accelerated learning programs. Dismantling such programs ensures that the only students who will excel long term are those who can afford a private education, tutoring, or specialized extracurricular programs.
Schools should be free of curriculum and programs driven by political activists, and instead make space for children to do what they do best – learn, grow, and create.
