Declare Your

Educational Independence

Recent headlines have caused all of us to cringe at the success of state-run, tax supported pre-schools through universities, and we want out. A hundred years of micro-injuries from compulsory universal basic schooling has damaged the individual’s conscience, the family’s authority, and the integrity of education.

Do you reject tax-funded, socialist schemes like public schools, charter schools, ESAs, and vouchers fueled by the coercive power of the welfare state?

Will you help restore the classical models of freedom education that support privately funded, parent-governed education through traditional schools, micro schools, hybrid schools, cottage schools, cul-de-sac schools, online schools, and home schools which are fueled by the energy of parents, the innovation of entrepreneurs, and the benevolence of scholarships?

Educational Independence

We, the Undersigned, endowed by nature and nature’s God with certain inalienable rights, do declare that the authority to direct the education of citizens rests with family government and not with civil government. We affirm and declare that a flourishing society is built upon families that are free to exercise those rights in order to fulfill their obligations and responsibilities to future generations, and further declare:

That education, which is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to the other, is the natural and proper jurisdiction of family government and not of civil government.

That the bond between man and woman is so sacred, and its effect on their sons and daughters so incalculable, that all institutions are obliged to respect, defend, and maintain that bond.

That all forms of government – self, family, church, and civil – are ordained by God to preserve the life, liberty, and property of its members in accordance with the laws of nature.

Further, to reverse the civil government’s usurpation of the proper functions of family government, we declare:

That both elected officials and unelected bureaucracies must act in accordance with the natural and constitutional limitations that circumscribe the powers of civil government.

That civil governments must make no laws restricting the free exercise of each family to associate for educational purposes through policy, enforcement, or funding, and any such laws or regulations must be removed.

Therefore, to restore education to the proper jurisdiction of family government, we propose:

That citizens recognize their role as members of families and secure and maintain the natural obligations of such including all of the costs and consequences of educational choices.

That family members, with the assistance of voluntary mutual aid societies, support private entities that offer the public a variety of educational resources, services, and scholarships.

We, the Undersigned, in the name of life, liberty, and the responsibilities inherent to the pursuit of happiness, solemnly publish and declare that the establishment of education is reserved for family government, its members, and voluntary associations. For this Declaration, we pledge our support with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.
