Two school board candidate training events set for February
Training sessions in NC will be held Feb. 9 in Raleigh and Feb. 10 in Mooresville.
Over the past two years, parents have become more involved in the education of their children than ever before.
Frustrated by mask mandates, school closures, learning loss, inappropriate materials, and the permeation of Critical Race Theory, parents took to protesting their local school boards in record numbers.
Protesting parents also found themselves targeted by the National School Boards Association, an organization that sent a letter to President Biden comparing parents to domestic terrorists.
To add insult to injury that letter would be used by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to direct the FBI to investigate moms and dads across the country, including applying a counterterrorism threat tag to anyone that crossed their path.
Two upcoming training events have been designed to help parents regain local control by giving them the tools they need to get elected to their local school board.
The NC Values Coalition will be partnering with Family Research Council Action to hold two free school board candidate training bootcamps.
According to the website for the events, topics will include:
What it’s like to serve on a school board presented by actual school board members
Challenges facing schools like CRT, gender ideology, sex ed, and enrollment decline
How to run a campaign for school board
How to support candidates for school board, including conservative voter guides, parent activism, and PAC’s
The first session will be held on Feb. 9, 2022, at Christ Baptist Church located at 400 Newton Road in Raleigh. The training will run from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The second session will take place the next day on Feb. 10 at Trinity Baptist Church located at 221 Ervin Road in Mooresville. The time for the training is the same as the first event - 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
