The headline on Reddit said “Conservatives are turning school boards into a battleground for culture wars. Struggling to push their agenda in other arenas, conservatives are bringing their buffet of grievances to schools – turning board meetings into an endless parade of ignorance, misinformation and just plain hatred.”
That is a lie.
School boards have always been a battleground in culture wars. Children’s minds (and futures) are the casualty.
There should be no such thing as government (“public”) schools. Especially not compulsory ones. That they exist means they are automatically political through and through– they can’t be otherwise as they are tied to government.
Someone is going to use them to advance their political agenda– it’s just that the Left-Statists thought they had that control in the bag. In the cases where their Right-Statist opponents are pushing back, the Left-Statists are squealing.
No statist faction has a monopoly on “ignorance, misinformation, and just plain hatred.“. That describes Critical Race Conspiracy Theory to a “T”, but the Left-Statists are happy to promote it.
The solution to toxic indoctrination isn’t to let someone else indoctrinate your kids.
Abolish kinderprison. Education over indoctrination.
