Parents unhappy with the woke takeover of their local education systems won big on Tuesday when they ousted progressive school board members and beat out pro-critical race theory candidates in multiple districts across the nation.
In Southlake, Texas, Andrew Yeager, a father concerned with the top-achieving school district’s drastic “cultural competence action plan” — which aims to shame people, especially white people, based on their race — won the seventh spot on the Carroll Independent School District’s school board on Tuesday in a landslide victory against his opponent Stephanie Williams. Yeager’s win was quickly maligned by NBC News as the result of faux outrage over a mild “diversity” plan, but the new school board member’s victory actually indicates that referendums inspired by the woke school board’s affinity for critical race theory and radical gender ideology are working.
Yeager’s win follows months of parent activism in the district after lawbreaking school officials and other community members tried to institutionalize teachings and trainings that are guilty of “racializing every possible interaction” inside and outside the classroom. While parents who were uncomfortable with this were heavily targeted by corporate media outlets such as NBC News, which happily amplified the narrative that anyone opposed to the “equity” curriculum is a racist, they quickly assembled the Southlake Families PAC which aimed to “strengthen our mutual goals of academic excellence, transparent accountability, fiscal responsibility and upholding character, integrity, a strong work ethic and leadership in our community.”
Now that Yeager is elected, board members who were backed earlier this year by the PAC, which is “unapologetically rooted in Judeo-Christian values,” hold a 4-3 majority in the district which can be used to spike any further attempts to push institutional racism down students’ throats.
Similar victories occurred across the nation where parents and community members who were unhappy with the wokeification of their children’s classrooms stepped up and offered to do something about it. In Douglas County, Colorado, four candidates running to fight back against the county school district administration’s embrace of critical race theory and masking for students who are already at extremely low risk of dying from COVID-19 won spots on the school board. Their victories quickly flipped the board majority in favor of members who aim to “prioritize kids first in all decision making.”
Four more conservative candidates opposed to forced masking and radical race and gender ideology also beat out progressive incumbents and new opponents to win positions on two different school boards in Kansas. Similar wins also occurred in Wichita, Kansas; Morganton, North Carolina; Ankeny, Iowa; Tredyffrin-Easttown School District in Pennsylvania, and many more.
Parents’ frustration with the education bureaucracy not only played a huge role in pushing Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin over the finish line to the governorship in Virginia but appears to be growing into a movement that could continue to influence statewide and even national elections in the future. Ballotpedia reported that more than 84 school board recalls have occurred this year against at least 215 members. That’s nearly three times the amount of school board recalls that occurred in 2020 and four times the amount of school board recalls that occurred in 2019.
