In this episode of Take Back Our Schools, Beth and Andrew speak with parent activist, Erin Phillips. We learn how discovering the Sex Ed curriculum in her child’s school turned Erin into a parent activist and led her to start a national organization focusing on parents’ rights. Erin shares her experiences of leading this growing organization and her advice on how to encourage other parents to get involved. We discuss the power of the teachers unions, and Erin’s efforts getting teachers to leave the national unions. We also talk with Erin about the prospects for true education freedom and school choice in the state of Nevada.

Erin Phillips is the co-founder and president of the non-profit organization Power2Parent Union and is spearheading Education Freedom for Nevada PAC. Under her leadership Power2Parent formed as the first parent union in Nevada with more than 10,000 members, and now has chapters in 6 states across the United States. In 2021, Phillipslaunched a signature-driven effort to create Education Freedom Accounts, to allow parents the freedom to choose the education that best fits their child’s needs. She is a regular guest on talk radio and has represented Power2Parent on local and national news.

    “focusing on parent’s right” – “parents’ rights”? Perhaps the original draft was “a parent’s right to [something]”. I wonder what that something was.
