Education Action Group Foundation is an education reform organization based in Muskegon, Michigan and founded by Kyle Olson. The organization advocates for school choice and local control over education reform through books, short films and stories on EAGnews.org.[1]

The group's mission statement is:

When the government took upon itself the obligation of educating America’s youth, it undertook a serious responsibility that demanded results. In far too many communities across America, the government is woefully failing in that responsibility.

Dismal test scores, out-of-control unsustainable spending, and the ardent defense of adults’ rights have all pushed the government education system to the brink of irrelevance. And worse yet, it’s all having a direct impact on our future ability to compete in the world.

Little is being done about it. Education Action Group Foundation believes the one-size-fits-all, assembly line government school system requires serious reform.

  • Put the needs of students first. What do students need in order to be successful? A quality teacher in every classroom. Up-to-date teaching methods and supplies.“Quality-blind” layoff rules are an insult to effective teachers.
  • Put the needs of adults second. During contract time, the fight is invariably about pay, benefits and retirement, not “what policies need to change in order to increase student achievement.
  • Empower parents to choose the school option that best meets the needs of their children.
  • State governments should enact reforms to give schools more control over their budgets and personnel decisions.
