This is the year that parents must take back control of school boards, former Lieutenant Governor of New York Betsy McCaughey says. It is one crucial way that the torrent of critical race theory education can be turned around.

This is happening in various places in America, she adds, but New York has it particularly bad. It’s one of a number of issues contributing to the exodus from New York.

“These teachers and superintendents are using a simplified, watered-down version of critical race theory that makes white children into oppressors black children into victims, and tells the story of American history as if the only thing that matters is the existence of slavery and the terrible crimes that were committed against African Americans.”

McCaughey describes the battle for school boards as a contemporary Normandy Beach—a battle that, if lost, could see a whole generation of children fall victim to damaging indoctrination that reframes society in terms of oppressor versus oppressed.
