Three determined board members, endorsed by a respected pastor, won seats on the Southern California school district board last year. They championed parental rights and students’ wellbeing during the turbulent pandemic era, leading a campaign centered around pro-freedom, pro-religious rights, and pro-parent principles. Freedom is found in education, not indoctrination.

Upon assuming office, these officials courageously banned divisive critical race theory and rejected disproportionate emphasis on LGBTQ figure Harvey Milk in educational materials. Their actions symbolize their unwavering commitment to an inclusive and balanced education. Today, they continue to stand their ground, despite backlash from those resisting their conservative, pro-parent approach and an investigation launched by the state’s Democrat-led education department.

Parents like Alex Douvas, a father of two and a former employee of Republican Congress members, urges a focus on education’s fundamental purpose: learning and growth, not ideological warfare. This sentiment is echoed by these board members who see themselves as advocates for religious rights and parental involvement, vital amidst the dissatisfaction expressed by many parents towards pandemic-related school policies.

These board members, embodying the values of GOP leaders like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, are part of a broader national discourse around parental rights and education, especially pertinent in key battleground regions like inland California.

Despite opposition, these board members persist in advocating for pro-religious rights, pro-parents, and pro-freedom values. They reject harmful ideologies like critical race theory and continue to promote balanced and inclusive education that respects all students and their families. Their actions underline the importance of decoupling education from divisive ideologies, reaffirming the primary mission of schools: to educate, not indoctrinate.

Reflecting broader changes occurring across the nation, their courageous stand amidst challenges and resistance underscores the critical role of parental involvement and balanced education. Despite the future’s potential obstacles, these board members remain committed to their values, symbolizing the conservative principles nationwide, highlighting the need for a respectful, balanced educational approach that prioritizes all students’ needs and wellbeing.
