The reasons stated in this survey have not gotten better and demonstratively worse for many parents. Perhaps many parents were thinking prior to Covid to undertake homeschooling but didn’t quite have the motivation. Covid provided that motivation. The point here is that many that left the public school system are not coming back.
These results are devastating for America’s left. Next to Donald Trump, there is no one on the right whom they loathe more than Ron DeSantis, and they’ve gone all-in on their opposition to DeSantis’ bill. The usual suspects in Hollywood and on social media have been conducting a full-court press against the bill for weeks now, but DeSantis has blown through their efforts with flying colors, and sanity has prevailed.

This is a perfect example of how CRT has infiltrated our schools and is indoctrinating our children. Parents, wake up! You need to be vocal about your opposition to these standards and demand that your legislators do something about it. Our children are the future, and we need to make sure they are given a chance to grow up in a country where everyone is treated equally, regardless of skin color or ethnicity.
When parents send their children off to school, they have a lot on their plate. For six hours every day over ten months out of the year (sometimes longer), moms and dads cede control over to teachers who are teaching lessons shaped by recent controversies. Some lessons were reported by parents and teachers that children were being taught CRT (Critical Race Theory) Educators have been exposed for teaching and promoting social justice & equity propaganda.

I was the object of something similar about a decade ago, except the attack came from State Republican insiders. They tried to get me fired from my job – sent an “anonymous” letter to the company president because I was badmouthing their choice for GOP state party chair. They said I was a sexist and a bigot. They wanted him to know the sort of people that worked for the company.
The problem of “declining enrollment” is one we’re seeing across the country, but particularly in blue states that were the most authoritarian in their approach to COVID, with school closings, and mask/vaccine mandates. When the schools closed, parents saw the poor educations their kids were receiving with their own eyes, and they’ve decided on alternatives such as home schooling and private schools for their children instead of sending them back to the same failing institutions.
The mutually back-scratching alliance between Democrats and teachers unions has cynically exploited urban school children for six consecutive decades. The harm they have inflicted on generations of America’s most disadvantaged young people has been so thorough, so devastating that it’s hard to conclude anything other than they couldn’t care less about the fate of the very children for whom they piously profess infinite concern.
Once sub-standard teachers have tenure, a Herculean effort is required to get rid of them. The teachers-first, children-second pecking order in the school systems cited below exists in virtually every urban Democrat-run district in America, where a king’s ransom of precious educational funding is frittered away to protect bad teachers.
Despite the nation’s public schools’ concentrated efforts to eradicate racism, many of these teachers insist that merely being expected to return to in-classroom instruction is a form of oppression.
