ATTORNEYS CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR RELIEF FOR PARENTS WITH CHILDREN IN FAILING SCHOOLS

Vargas Vs. Camden

E3 - A 360 degree approach to urban education reform

THREE CAMDEN PARENTS DENIED IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO CONSTITUTIONALLY ADEQUATE EDUCATION FOR THEIR CHILDREN

Early this afternoon attorneys for parents of three Camden public school students who filed a class action complaint with Education Commissioner Cerf, against the Camden Board of Education, seeking the immediate transfer of their children from Camden Public Schools, announced that the application for immediate relief was denied by Judge Edward J. Delanoy, Jr ALJ.

Attorneys urged commissioner of education to reject the recommendation of administration law judge. (See Joint Statement Attached)

“E3 is committed to helping these children escape public schools that everyone agrees are failing,” says Dick Zimmer, Esq., E3 Legal Committee Chairman. ”We will pursue this matter as far as necessary until justice is secured for the parents and children.”

“Children forced to attend failing schools are imprisoned in a system that provides them no hope for a future of employment, or participation in our civil society. This is the civil rights issue of our time,” said Reverend Therman Evans MD, E3 Chairman.

“Our society cannot continue to be comfortable with our failure to educate the children of Camden to their full potential. This is just the first step of many,” says Christy Davis Jackson, E3 CEO/President.

    Incredibly, throughout the presidential debates, one critical question was left unasked: “Would you empower parents to send their children to the school of their choice?

    Those who control education also control our nation’s culture and all that evolves there from, including the role of government in directing our lives. The greatest government-sanctioned violation of our civil rights, and denial of our liberty, occurs every day when government financially coerces parents to send their children to government schools. This has no place in a free society, and parental choice in education needs to be fully implemented NOW!

    It is therefore of vital importance that every voter be informed that the Republican Party’s explicitly published policy is to empower parents to send their children to the school of their choice, while the Democrats are firmly opposed.

    Empowering parents to raise and educate their children with minimal government intrusion, will also cut costs in half, improve educational quality exponentially, level the political field for the average voter, and vastly improve our economy and employment prospects.

    The actions we all take to achieve universal school choice will determine the future of our children and all society. A wealth of information on this critical issue is available at the Heritage Foundation and the CATO Institute.
