GOP Ideologues Keep Flopping In Their Efforts To Take Over School Boards
May 20, 2022 1 min, 5 secs

Conservative Republicans running for school boards in North Carolina and New York overwhelmingly lost their elections Tuesday night, the latest sign that the GOP’s effort to wage a sweeping anti-LGBTQ, anti-Black culture war on public schools is failing.

In New York, right-wing school board candidates who opposed diversity training, sex and gender education, and pandemic protocols were similarly trounced on Tuesday.

These candidates are part of a nationwide push by conservatives to change the ideological make-up of public school boards — something they claim is necessary to keep books out of classrooms that acknowledge the existence of LGBTQ people and address historical racism.

In some cases, GOP-led state legislatures have passed laws to give right-wing school board candidates an electoral advantage over Democrats.

Earlier in May, conservative school board candidates all across Montana overwhelmingly lost.

In the town of Eau Claire, for example, all three right-wing school board candidates who ran on anti-LGBTQ platforms lost to incumbents and their allies.

Weingarten said Tuesday’s New York election results are a good bellwether for how school board races are likely to continue playing out nationally, since these elections took place in heavily conservative and heavily Democratic districts all over the state.

Earlier this month, all but one of the 11 Tarrant County conservative school board candidates won their races in Texas.
