ROPE 2.0 seeks to equip parents with the information necessary to best champion their individual child’s educational needs and support legislation that empowers parents as the primary authority for their children.
Begun as Restore Oklahoma Public Education in 2010, ROPE spent years years researching, writing and lobbying on issues relating to public education at the local and state levels within Oklahoma and nationally. ROPE’s early concern over Common Core put them in the forefront of the fight against this, micromanaged, one size fits all, curricula better suited to creating automatons than children. In 2014, after 4 years of concentrated effort, Oklahoma passed HB3399, repealing the use of Common Core in Oklahoma. You can find all of ROPE’s blogs at their original blogspot.
Today, ROPE 2.0 focuses on three areas, each led by a separate Director; Education, Politics and Parental Rights. You can contact each Director via her personal email as follows:
