Dear Friends of the Alliance,

There's a lot going on at the Alliance right now, and we'll be sending out a newsletter in the near future to let you know about it. In the meantime, we thought you'd enjoy another of our occasional Alliance e-links.

You'll also want to check out Marshall's health update (for those of you new to us, that's Marshall Fritz, our founder). We've posted it on our web site - in Marshall's own words.

We are now, as always, deeply grateful for your continued support.  Donations are only one way you can help our on-going effort to free families from the grip of government-controlled schooling and the incredible dysfunction it imposes on parents, children and society. In one article below, Cal Thomas talks about helping children "come out" of public schools. As you read, please consider how you can help.

Many thanks!

New on our Alliance Quotations page:
If it's wrong--and it is--for the government to intrude into the churches of our nation, to reshape and affect their basic doctrine and teaching, then it is just as wrong for that same government to be the sponsor of the worldview and values of 90 percent of all our nation's children.  -Joel Belz, World Magazine, October 9, 2004

Coming Out

Jewish World Review

Posted March 4, 2008


Excerpt: Parents who worship at conservative churches on Sunday willingly send their children to schools five days a week where what they are taught undermines what they learned in church and at home. They would never think of taking their kids to a church that teaches doctrines opposed to their beliefs, but they don't give a second thought to doing the same thing by sending them to government schools. It makes no sense.

Interview with Karen Horwitz about Teachers and Teacher Abuse

By Michael F. Shaughnessy, Senior Columnist

Posted February 12, 2008


Excerpt: I returned to teaching in my forties, after earning a Master's degree in reading, and discovered that the system could not tolerate dedicated, competent, mature teachers, the very teachers children need...

We must take their [those who control the public school system] power from them and only we the people can do this because the courts, the media, and no one else will!


Alliance Note: And the only way to take their power from them is to take our children from them.
