How to Defend Your Parental Rights in Public Education
On this week’s episode, we discuss the nationwide debate over the direction of public education. There has been a sea change due to lockdowns, mask mandates, and curricula like Critical Race Theory, and parents have flocked to school board meetings to express their concerns. Many want to do more but just don’t know how. Laura Zorc joins today to explain how she’s working to empower parents to take back their school districts.
Laura Zorc is Director of Education Reform at FreedomWorks and executive director at Building Education for Students Together. She brings years of experience and expertise in the subject of education reform and an unparalleled devotion for putting power back in the hands of parents and families. Laura’s focus shifted to education when her children began public school in Florida. Desiring a quality education for her four children, Laura served in multiple positions on the parent-teacher board of her children’s schools, was elected twice as president of her county’s parent-teacher association, and co-founded Florida Parents Against Common Core (FPACC), one of the largest parent-led advocacy groups in the state. Additionally, she served on former Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Education Committee as the parent representative before being elected to the Indian River County School Board.
