The nationwide trend continues.
According to a report from Breitbart News, multiple far-left school boards in Florida were flipped this week, as parents turned out in force to make their voices heard. Parental rights in Florida schools have been a major battleground during this election cycle —even Governor Ron DeSantis is making school board endorsements.
From Breitbart News:
While primary elections occurred in Florida, New York, and Oklahoma Tuesday, Florida has general elections for school boards, meaning the winners will be the official members of the boards.
Many of the winning candidates have been endorsed by the 1776 Project PAC, an organization that has been instrumental in flipping school boards from liberal to conservative across the country.
“We saw massive election victories all throughout the state of Florida tonight,” 1776 Project PAC founder Ryan Girdusky told Breitbart News Tuesday. “It shows the desire of parents and residents across the country for some normalcy in our education system, and that means pushing against transgender ideology, critical race theory, critical gender ideology, and equity which destroys merit in education.”
“The 1776 Project PAC hopes to take these successes across the country,” he said.
