In the face of the federal government’s unprecedented growth, DFI is dedicated to solving problems in education, workforce, labor, and employment policy in a way that enhances freedom, preserves liberty, and empowers families and communities. We know that these issues overlap and demand thoughtful, coordinated solutions and oversight.
Teacher Union Accountability
Union-driven school lock-outs during the COVID-19 pandemic did tremendous harm to America’s students. Stand with students and send the big union bosses a message: Keep schools open! Kids have suffered enough.
Our nation’s one-size-fits all K-12 education system is failing far too many students and must be radically transformed to ensure all Americans have the freedom to choose the education that is best for them.
Higher Education and Student Loan Reform
Higher education financing must be changed to reduce taxpayer risk, provide incentives for college completion, discourage over-borrowing, and encourage high-demand alternatives to four-year degrees.
Workforce Preparation and Lifelong Learning
Americans should be free to choose the life and work that is best for them.
Agency Transparency and Accountability
Government transparency and accountability are central to a strong republic.
