"And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."
Hamlet, Act I, Sc.3, Line 75
"We have forty million reasons for
failure but not a single excuse."
Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)
The goal of ParentAdvocates.org is to put tax dollar expenditures and other monies used or spent by our federal, state or city governments before your eyes and in your hands.
Through our website, you can learn your rights as a taxpayer and parent as well as to which programs, monies and more you may be entitled...and why you may not be able to exercise these rights.
ParentAdvocates.org is an online newsmagazine which seeks to inform and empower parents or guardians of children, taxpayers, and people of all nationalities. We believe that we, as a group, must hold our leaders and elected officials accountable for the actions they take vis-à-vis our children and our lives, and we will tell you what those actions are as well as give you resources so that you may pursue what needs to be done to change the system and make it user friendly. When we see corruption in the workplace, in our government, or in our private lives, we must speak up, and we have the right to do this without retaliation. We need to take action immediately and not depend on others to resolve the issues at hand.
Fortunately, the new technology of computers, with internet access and email, gives us an opportunity to work alongside the traditional gatekeepers of information and "tell it like it is". We can then use this information to bring about systemic change and make sure that our elected politicians and educators are as passionate as we are about putting facts first and children first.
As we do not have all the answers to questions of education reform and the end to whistleblower retaliation, we expect you to use this website interactively, which means that we while we hope you find our data informative, we want to hear from you, too. A national conversation by concerned citizens is a force that no government can ignore. Let's do it, and let's do it now.
