Conservatives Scored Massive Victories In The Battle Over Education In 2022
In 2022, conservatives flipped dozens of school boards across the county, enacting conservative priorities and amending school policies to increase transparency in the classroom.
Moms for Liberty, an organization of conservative parents and school board candidates working towards parental rights in education, and the 1776 Project PAC,a political group that helps school board members against Critical Race Theory (CRT) get elected, endorsed candidates that won many of their races to flip school boards in 2022. School boards throughout the country also banned CRT, adopted new gender identity policies to involve parents and ousted administration in favor of mask mandates.
Of the 270 school board candidates endorsed by Moms for Liberty in 15 states, 140 won their elections, according to the Moms for Liberty. First time candidates won at a 74% rate and endorsed candidates in Florida won at a rate of 80%.
