“A lot of Republican voters are parents and grandparents, and they are concerned with the state of public education and where it’s going”
This is like a new Tea Party movement, and if they are successful, it will make a real difference in education.

Conservatives build momentum in school board races ahead of midterm elections
Conservative candidates campaigning to flip dozens of school board seats across the country are hoping a trend that began last year continues through the November elections.
In the midst of an off-year election cycle last year that saw Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) defeat his Democratic opponent, Terry McAuliffe, on a campaign platform that heavily emphasized parental rights, Ryan Girdusky’s 1776 Project PAC helped several dozen conservative school board candidates defeat liberal incumbents in multiple states.
Now, as the calendar nears the 2022 midterm elections, candidates backed by Girdusky’s unique political action committee have continued to rack up victories all over the country, and the political activist sees more on the horizon.
“A lot of Republican voters are parents and grandparents, and they are concerned with the state of public education and where it’s going,” Girdusky told the Washington Examiner, noting that the politicization of education is serving as a motivator to voters.
“These people have to get up, and they have to go vote,” he said. “In a lot of these areas, we struck record-breaking turnout for conservative candidates for school board because they wanted to make sure their children are not being force-fed liberal indoctrination.”
The group announced a new slate of endorsements on Tuesday, with the PAC supporting candidates in races in Michigan, Virginia, Maryland, Texas, Arkansas, and elsewhere.
