Our government-run public education system has held Americans hostage for generations, fueled by powerful teachers unions spreading a simple but effective lie—this is the way it has always been, and this is how it is has to be. In 2023, parents resoundingly rejected business as usual, kicking off a school choice revolution that was felt in every corner of the country.

Join TPPF’s Mandy Drogin, former Major League Baseball baseball player who played 14 seasons for the Texas Rangers, Mark Teixeira, and American Federation for Children’s Corey DeAngelis as they discuss Corey’s new book, The Parent Revolution, the incredible success of the Parent Empowerment movement in Texas, and where we go from here in the fight to provide education choice to every child in America.

Complimentary lunch will be provided for in-person attendees, and there will be a book signing with Corey DeAngelis after the discussion. A limited number of complimentary books will be given to in-person guests upon arrival—books will be first come, first served and supplies are limited. You’re also welcome to tune in online via livestream.
