Message from NPE - A Sharp Turn Right: A New Breed of Charter Schools Delivers the Conservative Agenda


Dear Norman,


We were not surprised by the approval of a religious charter in Oklahoma this week. Betsy DeVos and her allies are determined to use education to advance "God's kingdom" along with their political agenda. And the spread of right-wing charter schools, combined with vouchers and the culture wars, are part of the plan. That is our conclusion following an in-depth investigation of the accelerating growth of right-wing and Christian nationalist charter schools.

A Sharp Turn Right documents how right-wing politicians and operatives are involved in the establishment and governance in these schools, sometimes even benefiting financially. It also exposes the religious and quasi-religious symbols and practices in which many of these schools engage, blurring the line between church and state.

Our Tenth Anniversary Conference with its line-up of outstanding speakers will be our best and most important conference yet as we gather to fight against the right-wing forces determined to destroy and defund public education and turn it into a marketplace system of unregulated voucher schools, homeschools, online schools and yes, Christian nationalist charter schools.


We meet in Washington, D.C. on October 28 and 29. Please join us. 


Our nation, democracy, and our children are depending on us Register today.
