“Returning Excellence to American K-12 Education”

A Tele-Townhall with Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn 
and National Radio Host Hugh Hewitt

On Wednesday, December 4, Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn and national radio host Hugh Hewitt held a tele-townhall to discuss the work of Hillsdale's Barney Charter School Initiative. Through this program, Hillsdale helps to launch and provides ongoing support to classical K-12 charter schools nationwide. There are more than 20 Hillsdale-affiliated K-12 charter schools in eleven states, with additional schools opening each year. These schools provide an excellent and well-rounded education, including a strong American civics component, and place an emphasis on the importance of character.

Support the Barney Charter School Initiative

In keeping with its principles, Hillsdale College operates the Barney Charter School Initiative—as it does all its work—without accepting one penny of taxpayer funding.  Our charter school collaboration is offered free of charge, as a service to charter groups who share our devotion to educational excellence. Currently, a friend of Hillsdale College has committed to match any contributions for the Barney Charter School Initiative endowment dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million total.  You can make a gift—and thereby double its impact with this generous challenge—by donating now. With your partnership, we will instill in young Americans the knowledge and character necessary to sustain our nation’s heritage of liberty.
