The RI Center for Freedom & Prosperity today publicly backed previous calls for the resignation of Angelica Infante-Green, the RI Department of Education's failed commissioner, by promoting an online petition that all Ocean Staters are encouraged to sign.

SUPPORT THE CALL FOR THE COMMISSIONER’S RESIGNATION AND FOR REPEAL OF RIDE’S CURRICULA AUTHORITY

Under the deficient leadership of its commissioner, Angelica Infante-Green, the Rhode Island Department of Education deserves an “F” for failing to implement successful educational reforms while student achievement continues to plummet across the state. Infante-Green’s tenure coincides with passage and enactment of a controversial bill (S0863) that took away local school district control and granted RIDE with the authority to develop and mandate curricula standards in core subjects for all school districts in the Ocean State.

SCHOOL MASKING REGULATIONS

On March 15, 2024 at 9:00 AM RIDOH there will be a public Hearing for School Masking Regulations.  The Rhode Island Department of Health is proposing to adopt Masking in School (216-RICR-30-05-4) for the purpose of publicly setting forth the rationale for a masking requirement in the event a future masking requirement is promulgated by the Rhode Island Department of Health for students in grades Kindergarten through twelve in Rhode Island. The public is invited to submit testimony by sending an email to zachary.garceau@health.ri.gov until March 20.

YOU HELPED CLOSE THE LOOPHOLE THAT ALLOWS ADULTS TO ENGAGE IN SEXUAL ACTS WITH CHILDREN

VICTORY! Thank you for helping us pass Senate Bill 2219 and House Bill 8230 into law, which now expands the definition of “Sexual Assault” to include the acts of any person in a “position of authority” over children under the age of eighteen (18) to include any form of “sexual contact’. Your voices do matter!

ASK LAWMAKERS TO #SAVEOURSCHOOLSRI AND SUPPORT THE PARENTAL BILL OF RIGHTS

We are calling on our state lawmakers to reconsider a version of House Bill 6070 which was heard in committee in March, but then tabled. In passing legislation that would effectively prohibit the teaching of divisive race- or gender-based guilt concepts at the state and local level, our elected officials would spare us from countless hours of public acrimony at future school committee meetings in town after town across Rhode Island

Election Integrity Petition

Free and fair elections are under assault in our state. We must unite behind a common-sense election process that everyone will have faith in It is vital to restore trust among all of the people of Rhode Island when it comes to the integrity of our elections. It should be the goal to make it easy to vote, but hard to cheat.

FREE OUR STUDENTS FROM POLITICS #StandWithMomsRI

From unjustified school and bus mask mandates, vaccination passports, political mailers to young students, inappropriate sex-education materials, radical gender and social equity concepts and, now, to the divisive poison of inculcating our kids with critical race theory principles … parental rights are under assault. Public schools are being transformed into a political tool of the far-left and other special interest groups.
