ROPE seeks to equip parents with the information necessary to best champion their individual child’s educational needs and support legislation that empowers parents as the primary authority for their children. 

 Started in 2010 as Restore Oklahoma Public Education (now Reclaim OK Parent Empowerment), ROPE began fighting State Question 744 (Common Core) and has spent the years since, researching, writing and influencing legislation regarding issues related to public education at the local, state and national levels. We have also studied and influenced legislation regarding student data collectioncivics education and history standards, as well as public education fundingschool grade cards and teacher attrition in Oklahoma. Our first research paper, “Common Core State Standards and Race to the Top: An Introduction to Marxism 101” was written in 2011 and has been published to both Barnes and Noble and Apple Books sites. In 2014, after 4 years of exposing CCSS,  ROPE was gratified to witness the passage of HB3399, repealing the use of Common Core in Oklahoma.  

In recent years, ROPE has assisted Senator Shane Jett in his effort to repeal the teaching of tenets affiliated with Critical Race Theory through Senate Bill 803 (the bill which became HB1775) while researching CRT-related school curricula and Social Emotional Learning (SB1442). 

While helping encourage good legislation and raising awareness of issues happening in our schools, we also host workshops for parents and grandparents on their rights within the government education system, we speak to groups on a variety of different education topics, and even help with FOIA requests! We are run completely by volunteers, every penny you donate directly helps parents and grandparents navigate educational issues in Oklahoma.
