Solutions for Saving Our Country: Educational Freedom
“What ails us, as a society, is the fact that we are falling away from God,” stated former Attorney General of the United States, William Barr, at the Center for Urban Renewal & Education’s annual National Policy Summit this week in Washington D.C. The 3-day event brought together some of the nation’s top policy leaders with more than 60 pastors from all over the country who are part of CURE’s clergy network. At the summit, these faith leaders learned about key policy issues, collaborated with fellow pastors and were equipped to take the solutions back to their churches and communities. This week on CURE America with Star Parker, we highlight some wonderful parts of the summit focused on choice in education, getting our children out of government-run, union-controlled schools and to those that reflect the values of their parents. We feature AG Barr’s remarks as well as part of our panel discussion on Educational Freedom with Michael Benjamin of American Federation for Children, Francesca Fontenot, and former NFL great and CURE board member Jack Brewer. Some of our pastors also share their experiences at the summit. Educational choice is just one of the many topics we addressed at CURE’s National Policy Summit and we will be bringing you more in the following weeks on issues like police reform, homelessness and abortion. Please stay tuned for more powerful presentations.
About Power, Poverty & Politics
More than fifty years after the Civil Rights movement and nearly 160 years after the Civil War, racial tension in the country is at an all-time high. Riots, police reform and racial equity are all topics of national debate. Syndicated columnist and author of four books analyzing government impact on poverty in our urban communities, Star Parker, delves deep into national issues that impact America’s most distressed communities and the power and political will needed to fix them. This is a podcast of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a non-profit think tank fighting poverty and restoring dignity through scholarship supporting faith, freedom, and personal responsibility.
