Parrish Honored as Recipient of Education Liberty Award
United States Senate Candidate also Earns Education Freedom Coalition Endorsement
Medford, MN – The founders of the volunteer citizen organization About Common Core honored Conservative Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Phillip Charles Parrish, as the recipient of the Education Liberty Award. The group recognized Parrish not only for opposing Common Core but also for supporting teachers and parents to have the freedom to choose the best path in properly educating their students and children. Parrish also earned the formal endorsement of the Education Freedom Coalition.
“FOR PUBLICLY ENGAGING IN THE ESSENTIAL BATTLE FOR STATE AND PARENTAL RIGHTS,
THE PILLARS UPON WHICH CLASSICAL EDUCATION AND AMERICA STANDS; FOR COURAGE, LEADERSHIP, AND ACTION IN CHALLENGING ALL WHO IGNORE THE WISHES OF FAMILIES, TEACHERS, AND COMMUNITIES SEEKING TO RESTORE LOCAL CONTROL OF EDUCATION.”
In accepting the award, Parrish proudly states, “I am deeply honored to receive this award I believe our children do best when we shift educational control away from a centralized government and back to our local communities. I believe in our parents and teachers; they know the best-suited educational environment for their children.”
