National Education Expert Endorsement Letters

"To the Voters of the Great State of Michigan -

By voting for Tami Carlone for a position on the Michigan State Board of Education, you have a great opportunity to move forward the causes of academic excellence, parental rights, data privacy, and several others. I have been working against the incremental, but radical transformation of our nation via the education system at the state and federal levels for nearly two decades. Over the last several years I have been blessed to meet Tami and am very impressed by her deep understanding of these complex issues; her ability to work with elected officials, activists, and parents across Michigan and the nation; and her dedication and passion to protect the hearts, minds, and futures of our precious children. It is my great honor and pleasure to endorse Tami in my personal capacity for this important position."

"Tami Carlone is one of the most informed parents in the country on education policy and practice. She has been an active member of the national education network Truth in American Education, discussing best practices in education policy online on a daily basis. Tami also helped me edit my most recent book, “Changing the Course of Failure: How Schools & Parents Can Help Low-Achieving Students” and she co-authored a bill to get Michigan out of Common Core, related testing, and data collection in an effort to depoliticize taxpayer-funded schools. Tami knows what works and what doesn’t work in schools. She is committed to improving education for all Michigan students with proven methods, materials, and standards. What is in the best interests of this nation and its children is her driving force."

"To the Citizens of Michigan:

It is my great honor to endorse Tami Carlone’s candidacy for the State of Michigan Board of Education.

I have known Tami for years, have corresponded with her on a wide range of education issues, and have witnessed as she became well-known in Michigan, and then nationally, as an education advocate.

Nowadays, special interests dictate education policy, so that they might get a piece of the national $700 billion per year in education expenditures and so that children might grow to become cogs in a corporatist economy; yet, Tami Carlone’s heart is unpolluted by such perversities. With an open mind, she readily seeks the views and concerns of others. She relentlessly and unselfishly pursues the truth of each issue until she understands it thoroughly. Then she draws her sword and raises her shield (snowflake message: this is meant figuratively), and fights the good fight.

One of America’s great cultural achievements was the idea, and practice, that all children would be provided a true academic education that would enable them to fully exercise their liberties, to search for the truth in all things, and to be a person of substance for their families, faith communities, neighborhoods, and country. Such a basic education enables the individual to chart his or her own course in life, whether as a tradesman, professional, artist, businessman, etc. In adopting such an education for all, local communities across America rejected the practice in Europe and elsewhere of reserving a true education for the elitists.

But the education establishment has discarded that achievement. It has instead embraced a dumbed-down, collectivist education that prepares children to be mere cattle, to be tagged and moved from field to field in service of a few, favored corporations. It has nearly achieved the progressive dream of disconnecting children from their culture and from notions of eternal truths, as enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. If we continue on this course, the rising generation will be ill suited to chart their own paths in life, to direct government, and to safeguard liberty.

Until Michigan (and America for that matter) elects more school board members like Tami Carlone, liberty will be at peril.

For all these reasons, Tami has my full endorsement."

"Michigan needs advocates for local control, classical education, parental rights, student privacy, and common sense on their state board of education. Tami Carlone will be that advocate. I know this because that is what she has done for years on behalf of Michigan parents and taxpayers as an ordinary citizen."

"To the residents of Michigan, I am proud to call Tami Carlone a "Warrior" against the federal intrusion into education at the State level. Tami knows, like many of us nationally known anti-federal education Warriors, that 10% funding shouldn't equal 100% control. Tami has also identified the other controlling funding streams, programs, initiatives, and laws which are turning MI's education into a workforce prep streamline, not an academic powerhouse. I feel Tami would be a great champion against the "status quo'."

"It is my pleasure and honor to endorse Tami Carlone to be the next State Board of Education member. I have worked with Tami for several years in our collective efforts with Stop Common Core in Michigan to repeal and replace the nationally derived Common Core State Standards and its insidiously aligned assessments. She led the effort to stop the College, Career, and Civic Life Standards (C3 Framework) in 2015 from being adopted by the State Board of Education due to the inherent bias and inaccurate information throughout the standards. She also co-authored two bills, House Bill 5444 in 2016 and House Bill 4192 in 2017, which would have required the repeal of Common Core and the use of evidenced-based practices in Michigan’s school districts while returning local control back to parents. I can personally testify to her passionate and tireless efforts in restoring parental rights in all aspects of education.

Therefore, I am proud to endorse someone who has shown such exuberant leadership abilities and who is a fellow staunch supporter of liberty and freedom in our publicly funded educational system. Tami Carlone will be a valuable asset to the State Board of Education and to the parents and children of Michigan!

May God bestow many blessings on her campaign!"

Tami's a real fighter for public education....for the truth to be taught!  - Phyllis Risdon - Parent & Education Advocate

Tami has a great understanding of the issues that plague Michigan public education and a passion for helping to support ALL students in our state. As the mother of a student with special needs, I feel that Tami will work towards an educational plan that will be inclusive of all of our kids, no matter their ability to learn. She attended my son's 4 hour IEP meeting to gain a better understanding of how the process works, and to support my son and our family. I am more than confident that Tami Carlone will be a strong voice for our children.

Chris Bethel

Parent in Northville Schools

Tami Carlone is brilliant. She has incredible knowledge of the history of education, where it went wrong and how to fix it. Her grasp of data, statistics and structure will be a great asset to Michigan State Board of Education. Most important however is her knowledge of the history of our country and the importance of upholding the United States Constitution. Vote Tami Carlone for Michigan State Board of Education. 

Mrs. Sandy Betten 

Parent & Activist Spring Lake, MI

I am Stephen Rockman, a candidate for the Grand Haven Area Public School Board. I enthusiastically support Tami Carlone for the Michigan Board of Education. She understands that in our constitutional republic, a primary purpose of education is to instruct our posterity in the blessings of liberty. This requires honest instruction about our nation’s history and founding and reverence for our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. She further understands that we fail our students when we fail to inform them about patriotism and civil civic engagement. I trust that Tami will help restore respect for the founding principles of our country and how that ensures our hope for a brighter future.

As a home school educator, Mom of 4, Attorney licensed in the State of Michigan and former Milford Republican Precinct Delegate, I hereby endorse Tami Carlone for the State of Michigan Board of Education.

Mona-Lisa Cichosz, Esq.


Tami Carlone is running for one of the two open seats on the Michigan Board of Education. I know of no person more passionate and knowledgeable about what is required to improve our educational outcomes. She is a staunch opponent of the programs associated with what has become known as the “Common Core” system, as well as federal interference in our education process. Please spread the word. Elect Tami Carlone to State Board of Education. Thanks all."

Mr. Tom Stillings

Former 1st District Vice Chair & Congressional Candidate

"Dear Michigan - I recommend and endorse Tami Carlone for State of Michigan Board of Education. Tami is a strong proponent of students. She is able to assess the big picture and to dive into the detail. She is intelligent and never afraid to question. She was one of the first to identify flaws with Common Core. The students best interests is her motivation. Please support Tami Carlone in her bid for this critical role. Thank you."

Rhonda Weber

Northville Republican Club Director Social Outreach

"To the wonderful people of the great state of Michigan,

It is my honor and pleasure to wholeheartedly endorse Tami Carlone for State Board of Education.

I have known Tami for over 18 years and cannot say enough about her passion and heart for the children of our state. Tami has always held steadfast in her quest to ensure that our children receive a quality education. She understands their need to be well rounded, successful, confident, and healthy (inside and out) in order to achieve their full potential. Tami has the knowledge, integrity and leadership skills to help guide our children in our ever changing world.

There are so many factors, which influence a child's future success, and Tami is in tune to the varied needs of ALL our children to be successful. She has spent years working with local school districts navigating changing educational requirements and has worked hard to make sure our students educational needs are met in a logical, proven way while understanding the importance of family involvement.

Tami is a strong advocate for equal education, free from prejudice of race, gender, or religion, and will fight to make sure special interest groups do not influence our standards. She swill study a matter until she knows it inside and out before making a decision. She thoughtfully thinks before acting or responding to a crisis.

Tami will make certain she is putting our children's best interests above all others. She will work tirelessly and honestly. She will put her heart and soul into doing the best job for our children's education.

As a Family Practice Physician and mother of two who understands the physical, emotional and educational needs of our children, it is without hesitation that Tami Carlone has my utmost support and endorsement for the State of Michigan Board of Education. I would be proud to have Tami represent my family and the state I love."


Sheryl R. Conn, M.D.

"Tami Carlone, a Flint native like my husband, and I spoke for quite a while about education reform and the truth behind the inequality and educational divide within our school system specially inner city schools. I was impressed by her knowledge and drive to make a positive impact on all schools, not just those in the better communities in the state."

Endorsements by Organizations:



"Detroit, Michigan -- United States Parents Involved in Education ACTION (USPIE Action) announced its endorsement today of Michigan conservative leader Tami Carlone for the Republican nomination for Michigan School Board.

USPIE Action is the legislative affiliate of United States Parents Involved in Education (USPIE) with the shared goal of abolishing the US Department of Education and ending all federal education mandates. Ms. Carlone has signed the “Stop Fed Ed” pledge “to reject all federal mandates tied to federal funding,” and “fight against federally mandated curriculum, standardized tests, student data collection, and all illegal and unconstitutional mandates from the U.S. Department of Education.”

Founded in 2014, USPIE Action is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit that exists to further the goals of freeing the nation's schools from federal intrusion as they endeavor to impact public policy, influence elections, and support candidates who share their goal to restore local control of education to parents and communities.

USPIE Action President Sheri Few says, “This outstanding candidate has signed the USPIE pledge committing to do everything within her authority and constitutional power to defund and abolish the unconstitutional United States Department of Education, to cease all federal education mandates, and end the collection of student data without prior written parental consent.”

The national parent group says it looks forward to working with Ms. Carlone, a member of the Michigan school board, advising her on education policy issues and restoring local control of education to parents and communities."
