A Young Mind is Terrible Thing to Waste:
Looking into K-12 teaching careers for the liberty-minded

Let's be honest, not everyone who revels in discussions about liberty wants to go into the cloistered academic life. There are many important roles and careers for freedom proponents to choose from. Have you considered teaching K-12?

Think about it. What better opportunity to contribute to the liberty movement than by teaching K-12, where you can engage young minds on fundamental concepts? And how many of us have been affected deeply by a teacher long before we hit college?

Bring an open mind and your commitment to liberty. And we'll supply the reasons to consider a career in K-12 education that you may not have realized before.
