Of course they shouldn't. But they do. And they also hide rape either, but they did.

In 2021, public school parents vaulted to the forefront of America’s fractured political landscape. Around the country, parents objected both to Covid-related school closures and to racially divisive curricula. Parental frustration helped secure sweeping GOP wins last month in Virginia, highlighted by Glenn Youngkin’s victory over former governor Terry McAuliffe. Youngkin has promised to rein in public-school radicalism and “ban critical race theory” on his first day in office.

Perhaps the central moment in the Virginia gubernatorial race was McAuliffe’s comment during a debate: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Like most Virginia voters, we couldn’t disagree more. Research shows that greater academic success follows when parents actively engage in their children’s education. To be sure, this doesn’t mean that we should decide the finer points of curricular design by plebiscite; nor does it mean that a minority of objecting parents should dictate school pedagogy. But public schools are institutions created by “We the People” and should be responsive to the input of parents and the broader voting public at the state and local level.

When Hanoi Jane Fonda called COVID "mana from heaven" she didn't realize its side effect. Along with heaven comes hell; hell in the form of disgruntled school parents who witnessed first-hand the propaganda kids were being taught via remote learning. An unintended consequence. It unleashed the Cracken in the form of pissed off PTA mothers. It now has democrats running for cover.

Vote against anyone running for school board who won't explicitly state that they are for 1960s style education.

Period.

Math, Western Civilization, Reading, Writing, Science. The constitution.

No CRT.

No "the American Indians were on the verge of inventing space travel and curing cancer before the white man came".

No leftist ideas at all.
