It’s another case of Democrats saying the quiet part out loud. The school choice movement has been fighting for decades for parents to have the ability to determine which schools get their tax dollars, including schools other than state sponsored institutions. They have consistently hit a brick wall in terms of legislation, but that is starting to change.
Conservative groups have long ignored the public school environment as a place of potential indoctrination, often assuming that leftist propaganda was limited to colleges. However, identity politics and gender theory have now become commonplace within schools across America all the way down to Kindergarten and pre-school ages. Numerous instances of school sponsored programs involving sexualized curriculum, Critical Race Theory and even drag queen shows are pervasive.
On top of this, many parents in 2020 also found themselves in conflict with public school mandates during the covid hysteria and realized they had few options in dealing with overzealous state restrictions. In some cases, state officials were calling for forced mRNA vaccination of children in order to get access to educational facilities.
These developments have startled millions of parents out of their apathy and injected momentum into School Choice policies – A plan to decentralize schooling and take power away from government bureaucrats and far-left teachers unions. Multiple states have now introduced or passed legislation allowing tax dollars to be allocated for parents to move their children to private schools if they feel their public school is insufficient. The laws vary, but are often associated with school vouchers.
