About the Author
Kyle Olson became a warrior for education reform when he began noticing corruption in the system: unions putting the interests of adults first, teachers using their classrooms for leftist propaganda sessions and politicians being elected by special interests, only to turn around and do their bidding. He was shocked by what he learned when making his first documentary film series, "Kids Aren't Cars" When Kyle's oldest son recently came of schooling age, these issues became intensely personal for him. Kyle started Education Action Group, a Michigan-based non-profit organization, four years ago to do something about the problem. Kyle believes the nation's public education system should promote the traditional American ideals of freedom and personal liberty, instead of the progressive ideals of collectivism and centralized government. While the education establishment clamors for ever greater amounts of "investment" Kyle counters that our schools have a spending problem, not a funding problem. He also believes administrators and school employee unions must be held accountable for the miserable return taxpayers are receiving from all their so-called investments. Kyle has communicated the need for education reform by contributing regularly to BigGovernment.com, TownHall.com and makes frequent appearances on talk radio programs across the country. He has appeared numerous times on Fox News Channel, MSNBC, Fox Business Network, and National Public Radio. His and EAG's work has also been cited by the Drudge Report, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck. While Kyle likes talking politics, he especially likes to talk about his family, as well as his favorite music. Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Johnny Cash are at the top of the list. He has attended 22 Bob Dylan shows. He graduated from Michigan State University in 2001. Connect with Kyle at KyleOlson.org, Facebook.com/kyleolson4 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
