The Scottsdale Unified School Board elected a new president after ousting the previous president who had been keeping dossiers on parents critical of school district policies.  Call it the revenge of the ‘domestic terrorists’, which is basically what Attorney General Merrick Garland called parents in his memo siccing the FBI on them.

The parents revolt against the poisoning of their children’s minds took a scalp in Scottsdale, but that’s not the only victory, recently.

A school board in Oregon voted to reinstate two educators after firing them for campaigning against transgender bathrooms and preferred pronouns.  Nothing like a lawsuit to focus the mind.

The Virginia Supreme Court reinstated a teacher in Loudon County who opposed transgender pronouns.  Loudon is the epicenter of the parents revolt and the schools agreed to pay the teacher’s attorney’s fees and remove his suspension from his personnel file.   Parents in Loudon have petitioned to recall the radical school board after it tried to cover up transgender sexual assaults on school grounds.

Another great victory was notched by 8-year-old Fiona Lashells in Florida who was suspended 38 times for defying her school’s mask mandate.  The school district finally gave up and dropped the mandate.  If an 8-year-old can stand up to tyranny, you can, too.

Other students are fighting back, as well.  In addition to a walkout in Loudon, students at a high school in North Carolina walked out to protest the suspension of a girl who had been sexually assaulted whose only crime was to report the crime that had been perpetrated on her.  A teacher sued a Missouri school district over critical race theory training that instructed her she is a white supremacist if she insists on proper English in her classroom, says ‘All Lives Matter’, or calls the police on a black suspect.  Parents in Brevard County, Florida sued the local school board for attempting to shut them up and threatening to fine them for speaking their minds.

And the Merrick Garlands of the world wonder why parents are revolting against them.

If you’re a parent looking for a way to join the fight, take your kids out of public schools.  Public school funding is directly tied to enrollment – fewer kids, less money.  Hitting schools in the pocket book is a sure-fire way to get their attention.  It can be done – nearly 12,000 students have left the public schools in Broward County, Florida in the last two years.  This will force painful budget cuts on Broward schools when federal COVID relief money runs out.  So, if you think teachers unions are too powerful, your schools are doing a bad job or poisoning your kids’ minds with Critical Race Theory and transgenderism, take your kids out and put them in private schools or a homeschool co-op.  They will thank you for it, one day, and the public school-industrial complex will start to crumble, as it so richly deserves to do.
