A new interview notes that voters trust the GOP more than Democrats when it comes to the classroom.
Corey DeAngelis, senior fellow at the American Federation for Children, shares an interview that shows the focus must be on helping kids rather than the “other players” in public education.
The Democrats’ focus on teachers unions and political gain has led to wild changes in public schools since President Joe Biden has entered office. We’re now at the point that conservative led states like Florida are passing laws to prohibit teaching little kids about sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade classrooms, and the Biden administration OPPOSES the decision.
In addition to ethical issues, public schools are downright failing students. We’re spending less time teaching reading and math, and fighting over whether “woke math” should be included in classrooms.
If it’s not a radicalized curriculum, it’s arguing over which bathroom a child can use, preferred pronouns or hosting a Pride parade. Parents are rightly upset and the key is restoring the rights of parents in education.
The interview shares the example of Virginia, where the battle became the focus of the 2021 election for governor that put Republican Glenn Youngkin in office. If conservatives can build on the same strategy, it should be a win for Republicans nationwide who come to the rescue of kids and parents in schools. Check out the video for the full report.
