Parents are beginning to revolt against the policies and practices of elitist school boards. Last week in Virginia, moms and dads took a stand after being told their opinions don’t matter when it comes to what their sons and daughters are being taught in school. The result: Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe was roundly defeated in favour of Republican Glenn Youngkin.

A similar parent empowerment movement is needed in Ontario, where students are suffering due to extended school closures and parents are witnessing a concerning trend of schools allowing woke ideology, rather than hard facts, to shape what children are learning in the classroom.
