Posted on 03/03/2017 6:15:44 AM PST by luckystarmom
I have a special needs daughter who excelled after going to private school. We would have loved financial help in any form to help pay for her schooling and therapy.
She went from below grade level in reading in 3rd grade to above grade level in 2 years using an Orton-Gillingham based multi-sensory reading program.
I would love to use her as an example of how vouchers could help students.
I would live to testify about how damaging public school was to her (pulling her from recess, not remediating her reading just dumbing down the work).
Any ideas how I can help dismantle public school?
Here are some resources for info:

I was just listening to one of the Choice in Education audios last night. Good info.
There is likely a homeschooling organization in your state. They would know. And, maybe there’s a lobbyist for your state legislature, too. Good luck.
I would suggest that you email Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, write a letter to her, or both. Let your (republican only) Senators/Congressmen know as well. It’s nice to give them a local constituent who can help them, and DeVos might be glad to have someone from your district to support her positions.
