The Home School Community's New Offensive
Home school students and graduates this year are taking part in an historic movement that will change the shape of campaigning in Texas.
In the wake of the success of the THSC Watchmen program in 2013 the Texas Home School Coalition launched an unprecedented offensive for the 2014 election cycle. Interns admitted into the THSC Rangers in 2014 were directed to campaigns of candidates whom THSC determined to be champions of home schooling and parental rights, where they assisted the campaigns through block walking, phone banking, and data analysis, as well as other critical segments of the campaign.
In 2014 the THSC Rangers were a significant force in the election cycle. In 2016 THSC is working to plant Rangers clubs around the state that will teach students about the political process, train them to understand public policy, and get them involved politically at the local level to make a difference in their state. If you are interested in helping start a club in your local area then make sure to fill out the form below.
THSC Rangers interns will gain a real-world understanding of our election process in Texas and political experience that cannot be gained through classroom educational methods. Rangers will report back to THSC with their progress at predetermined intervals. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will not only be an extremely valuable educational experience but will also be crucial in THSC’s efforts to elect officials who will defend home schooling and parental rights. THSC Rangers may even receive college credit, along with other future opportunities, for some of their work. Register today!
The THSC Rangers program set off with the ambitious goal of finding, vetting, and directing more than 1,000 interns into home school-friendly political campaigns across the state. The THSC Rangers is a never-before-seen asset, with incredible potential, that the home schooling community is gearing up to wield. Applicants for the THSC Rangers are reviewed based on their skill sets, political savvy, and understanding of conservative issues. Applicants are not required to have previous political experience in order to participate.

This year THSC launched an impressive effort to help defend Texans’ rights all across the state. This effort came in the form of the THSC Rangers program, through which we recruited almost 500 (or “475”) interns, chosen for their knowledge and their principles of conservatism, who assisted with the campaigns of candidates whom we know […]
With the runoff elections behind us, life in Texas has reached a coasting speed for most politically savvy activists. However, for some of us this is really just the calm before the storm. With special elections filling the interim between the Primary and the General Election, even the calm can still be far from restful. […]
