Lesson for RI? Grass roots efforts displace radical leftist school board members with moderate/conservative parents in Florida. Will RI voters do the same?

The nationwide elections last week included more than just primaries for statewide office. In many areas, there were also elections for school boards and other regional positions. In Florida, conservatives celebrated unprecedented success in defeating radical left school board members with moderate and coservative candidates. Multiple county school boards, including Miami/Dade – one of the largest in the nation, flipped from majority liberal to majority conservative. Miami Dade has now become the largest county in America with a conservative school board majority.

This was the result of a grassroots campaign which had the support from Gov. Ron DiSantis, who had identified 30 candidates his campaign supported for school board election. Of the 30 identified, 25 either won their races or advanced to the next round of voting.

The Florida model is one that can and must be replicated across the nation to put the curriculum of public schools back in the hands of parents who want to emphasize academics and limit such things as mask mandates, gender issues, socialism, critical race theory and other radical left ideologies.

“The community has spoken, and it is crystal clear: they are demanding a re-set of the school board. And that’s what they are going to get,” said Bridget Ziegler, one of the victorious candidates in Sarasota County where three conservative candidates were elected and displaced liberal incumbents.

The ParentsUnitedRI.com movement has put forth over 2 dozen candidates – many at the local school board level – who believe in preserving parental rights when it comes to the important educational and vital healthcare decisions for their children. Rhode Island voters should inquire of every candidate if they have taken the ParentsUnitedRI pledge.
