      For those of you looking for something to do to actually make a difference,
      take a look at your state laws about charter schools. Generally, any
      properly organized group can apply to start one and the idea is to do
      something different than a typical public school would do.

      I've just (literally UPS'd the final application plus 10 copies 20 minutes
      ago) applied to start a charter school along with a group of six other local
      volunteers, and while it was a huge effort involving over a year of our time
      to just create a complete application (and now we have to present it to the
      State Charter School Board and then actually build and open the school) it
      will probably also make more of a difference in educating future voters
      (current and future students, 975 every year) outside the leftist monopoly
      on education in this country than just about anything else we could have
      tried to do.

      The big key is to recruit like-minded other people with the right skill sets
      to get together and get the application done.

      If anyone plans to apply to their state to start a Charter school, email me
      privately and I can give you more detailed assistance than would be
      appropriate in this forum.
