Reclaim Oklahoma Parent Empowerment

Reclaim Oklahoma Parent Empowerment (ROPE2.0) is committed to educating tax-paying citizens and parents about the ways in which the methods and philosophies used in public education today affect them. From budgetary allotments to curricula, ROPE2.0 attempts to make Oklahomans aware of how every dollar spent and every idea taught can actively influence the future voters enrolled in Oklahoma Public Education today.

Only parents can truly know what’s best for each of their individual children and only parents have the vested interest necessary to raise children with the education each will need to become productive Oklahomans and Americans. Every child has the right to an education best suited to them, and every parent has the right – and duty – to provide such an education. ROPE 2.0 seeks to help equip parents with the information necessary to best champion their child’s educational needs.

However, because the vote failed, Student Surveys will NOT be recommended to the State Board of Education as a Quantitative measure for the state Teacher Evaluation system. Congratulations is deserved to the Commission for getting this one right!….
