Statement on Free Speech
Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information. In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings. To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country. But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.

How the 3R's are Killing our Public Schools
Tony Beaverson, M.Ed., former classroom teacher and Executive Director of the Oklahoma Education Association, will put forth his belief that an atypical set of 3R’s, are with malice of forethought, hell bent on destroying America’s public school system. The 3R’s being Republicans, Religion and Racism. He will illustrate how these three entities actively work in both coordinated and non-coordinated fashion to undermine the public’s confidence in what is perhaps the last bastion of egalitarianism in the country. Tony will review historic and current examples of how greed, dogma, ignorance and intolerance of “other” cultures are used to achieve the 3R’s political and legislative agendas, ensconced in a propaganda campaign worthy of Joseph Goebbels.
