233 school board members facing recalls in 2021

The most common recall office in 2021 was a member of the school board, with 233 of the 529 record attempts.

In a CNN report detailing the “historic high” number of recalls in 2021, editor Chris Cilliza theorized the number of recalls due to “relatively small groups of people unhappy with a local, state or federal elected official find. – thanks to the power of the Internet. And, this power also allows them to organize the opposition quickly and inexpensively. “

Writing specifically on the school board number, Cilliza said it was “a number you have to assume he was heavily influenced by best practice struggles in schools to deal with Covid-19 “. And as discussions of coronavirus protocols, which have been detrimental to student development, have grown intense, CNN has entirely sidelined the parent-led movement against the critical indoctrination of racial theory and transgender policies. radical outbreaks in public schools.

These issues, which parents across the country have gotten upset about – and which the establishment media have almost entirely neglected to report – have been the driving force behind many of the recall efforts.

In response to a tweet from Cilliza, Asra Nomani, Vice President of Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, said :, and black money agents.

Breitbart News reported on numerous recall efforts, probably the most significant of which was in Loudoun County, Va., Where the initiative began as a fight against critical breed theory, but then snowballed. when it was revealed that the school board allegedly covered up several cases. sexual assault, ostensibly in an effort to easily pass a sweeping transgender bill.

While mask warrants and school closures were certainly a large part of recall efforts, past recalls have stemmed from “disputes over mismanagement, violations of public meetings or allegations of corruption.” The 2021 reminders, however,[ed] on efforts to quell the teachings of critical race theory and dissatisfaction with mask requirements. “

But, as Cilliza writes, “Recall laws were put in place to deal with egregious acts of professional misconduct (or illegal conduct) during his tenure. They are now being used as a means for a relatively small faction of disgruntled voters to voice their displeasure. “

Yet this “relatively small faction of disgruntled voters” was in fact able to influence the Republicans’ election for the governor of Virginia in all three races statewide and in the House of Delegates. ‘State. This Republican victory, many attest, was primarily due to education issues stemming from critical race theory, transgender politics and the coronavirus. While not a procedural reminder, it is seen by many as a referendum on the power over parents that school boards and teachers’ unions have wielded to the detriment of children.
