The election of Republican Glenn Youngkin as governor of Virginia on Tuesday night was the gunfire heard across the country as Republicans wiped out Democrats at both local and state government levels nationwide.

A focus not only on the Virginia Governor’s race focused on education: what teachers teach and what role parents should play. Opposition to critical race theory (CRT) has been featured in the Virginia race, but also in school board races across the country.

CRT opponents came forward on election night and a new political action committee dedicated to those elections won a victory in 75% of 58 school board competitions were held in seven states. The PAC Project of 1776 proved to be a huge force.

The late Andrew Breitbart once said that “politics is downstream of culture” and it seems Republicans are starting to understand this.

The founder of the 1776 PAC Project, Ryan Girdusky, told Axios: “My PAC is campaigning to on behalf of everyday moms and dads who want to have better access to their children’s education “.

Parents asking “could it happen here?”

According to the Axios report, school officials around the world say they are “worried” about “misinformation” is disseminated on what is actually taught in the nation’s public schools.

At least as far as Virginia is concerned, however, there have been widespread reports of media experts who claim that parents are not really seeing what they think they are and that CRT is not taught.

Opponents of the CRT argue that it is a semantic ploy: CRT advocates are playing a pun to teach CRT principles and arguments without explicitly calling it as such.

And while school boards can gather conservative candidates in pretty red places like Kansas, candidates aren’t just winning in red states. Conservative candidates won in fairly blue spots on Tuesday, including Montgomery County, Pennsylvania and Passaic County, New Jersey.

What prompted the parents to act?

Those who followed parents’ reactions at school board meetings pointed to several factors in what woke a sleeping giant. In Virginia, it was undoubtedly the former Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s statement during a debate with Glenn Youngkin that “I don’t think parents should tell schools what they should teach”.

For millions of other parents across the nation, the last straw was most likely US Attorney General Merrick Garland mobilizing the FBI and local prosecutors to cooperate with local officials to target parents who might be seen. as “a threat” simply by speaking at a school board meeting about CRT teaching or mask mandates.

Education could be the winning formula for Republicans in 2022 and beyond. A GOP national strategist also told Axios that the education issue “seems to be going our way, whether it’s school blocks, curriculum or critical race theory.”
