GRADY: Moms for Liberty’s Candidates Fight for Parents’ Rights

It has been quite a tumultuous three years, hasn’t it?

Overnight, our sons’ and daughters’ classrooms were brought into our homes, and parents noticed that a clearly discernible political ideology has been covertly ushered into America’s public school system. It was a shocking realization to most parents that local public schools have shifted focus away from the traditional model of fundamental education and have embraced developmentally inappropriate political ideologies that masquerade as “education” initiatives.

Subsequently, America’s education system was placed in the spotlight as many had come to the same conclusion: The left is purposefully diverting from the fundamentals of education in order to advance an educationally and psychologically detrimental political agenda onto America’s school children.

The mission of educational leadership is clear, the total transformation of our schools and ultimately our nation. Starting with the Department of Education and trickling down to local communities through the NEA, the AFT, and the PSEA. Their methods to achieve this transformation are simple yet effective: Steal independent thought, stifle free speech, and “educate” our children with divisive ideologies while muzzling those who disagree.

These organizations seed school board candidates with funds and manpower. They advocate for “educational” initiatives that undermine our children’s education, and mental health, and they are powerful. However, moms are unafraid powerhouses and educational leadership knows it; that’s why they shut us down, label us, dox us, and fight so hard to destroy those of us who call out their agenda.

Our courage to stand on our morals and speak up was contagious; overnight we had thousands of powerhouses supporting each other across the country. We came together on fundamental issues to protect our children, even if it’s “politically incorrect” or offends the mainstream narrative to do so. Moms for Liberty (M4L), formed out of necessity, is now educational leadership’s worst nightmare. M4L values the importance and fundamentals of the constitutional republic within which we live. M4L members believe that children should be educated in fundamental core subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science without being inundated with political rhetoric, age-inappropriate content, or political ideologies.

The groups against M4L are run by political operatives in the community, funded and organized by national progressive organizations. These groups are directly responsible for fomenting hate, and they need to be exposed for what they are: Partisan extremists.

They publicly spew intentionally negative and divisive messages about our members to their followers, often while hiding behind fake profiles. Our opponents decry our efforts as “nationalism” and “authoritarian.” M4L members stand against school initiatives that teach children to accept destructive content and contort their thinking towards false realities that, data suggests, are significantly contributing to the mental health decline of our children in public schools.

Our opposition attempts to paint M4L as “book banners” because we oppose the developmentally inappropriate sexualization of children, and we stand against inappropriate content being made available in public schools. They know how powerful moms truly are, especially here in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Teachers Union Conference recently featured a session on “Fighting Parental Rights Advocacy,” YES. FIGHTING. PARENTAL. RIGHTS. ADVOCACY.

Meanwhile, the PSEA held a “Combatting Moms for Liberty Attacks on our Teachers and our Schools” training. Clearly, an agenda has been set by Pennsylvania educational leadership: Wipe out Moms for Liberty. Pretty pathetic. The agenda pushers know that M4L is growing as a movement because their deception and destructive agenda are clear to the masses.

Subsequently, the volume of their hateful rhetoric against M4L has grown. Contrary to the deliberate misrepresentations, all 115 chapters of M4L are fighting to SAVE public education. As a result of their political agendas and abysmal policies, only 3 in 10 Pennsylvania eighth graders are proficient in math, an 11-percentage point decline from 2019, according to NAEP data.

Pennsylvania’s current school leadership is utterly failing our kids. School directors have a duty to obey and defend the U.S. and Pennsylvania constitutions while upholding the American way of life in the operation of our public schools. M4L Chester County School Board candidates will uphold such mandatory duties while creating academic excellence, ensuring the curriculum focuses on developing critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders, and improving math, reading, and writing proficiencies.

M4L Chester County candidates will stand for all students and community members and support the principles upon which this nation was founded, freedom and liberty. Our candidates will ensure transparency within the school districts. Our candidates will ensure that participation in programs, policies, or plans that will infringe one’s deeply held beliefs, or entangle any ideologies into the educational process, will not be blanketed upon students, staff, and administration.

NEA Resolution to Call Mothers ‘Birthing Parents’ Draws Scorn

At its convention this week in Chicago the National Education Association (NEA) mulled a resolution to replace the word “mother” with “birthing parent” in its written communications.

While the teachers’ union ultimately did not adopt the “woke” verbiage or even bring it to the floor, the proposal raised eyebrows in the U.S. and around the world.

“Not surprisingly, the NEA once again weaponizes the teachers’ unions to promote a radical, liberal agenda in schools,” said Moms for America Senior Director, Quisha King. “Changing the word ‘mother’ to ‘birthing parent’ is not only ridiculous and disgusting, but it clearly shows the lack of common sense and disconnect that the NEA has with the American family. Even the term ‘chest-feeding’ goes against the morality and principles of common sense. The progressive agenda that the NEA embraces shows that it will listen to the politics first before the students, teachers, and schools it is supposed to represent.

“It is obvious that the NEA has used its unions to protect liberal issues like critical race theory and transgenderism. It severely endangers our boys and girls with these ideals and it dis-incentivizes its members to actually listen to parents and students.

“At Moms for America, we work hard to provide resources for concerned parents about their schools and what is being taught in them. For example, our Mom’s Guide to Parental Rights explains the legal rights that parents have when it comes to the school system, school board, and classroom. As always, Moms for America will continue to fight to protect our children in schools, and keep our moms informed of how they can take back the power from the anti-American movement,” King said.

“The NEA’s expressed intent is to completely dismantle the traditional family unit, severing the sacred and unique relationship children have with their mother and father,” said Elana Fishbein, founder of No Left Turn in Education and a Lower Merion resident.  “To think that teachers of all people, would mount such a destructive assault on the psyche of children is truly mindboggling.

“They aim to neuter society.  And once they have destroyed the notion of mother and father in a child’s mind, that child will not see him or herself as a father or mother in adulthood but as some sort of parental unit where gender is interchangeable.  The society the NEA wants to create is like life imitating bad science fiction – a complete destruction of traditional society to serve some strange dystopian vision.”

“This NEA resolution is just another indication that teachers believe they are responsible for the social indoctrination of our children, rather than focusing on their only task of educating our children,” said Bruce Chambers, the former president of the Great Valley School Board.  “Rather than discuss how teachers can do a better job in educating our children, the NEA focuses on social issues.  We see this play out locally by the inordinate amount of time and resources that are dedicated to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion issues in the Great Valley School District.

“They hold secret meetings with Middle School students who may indicate signs of gender non-conformance and then call them by new names and pronouns without telling their parents.  Yet, we never hear how the teachers and the school board are establishing goals to improve the academic results of the district.  The NEA resolution does not surprise me.  It is just pathetic,” Chambers said.

And Clarice Schillinger, a parent advocate and Horsham mom, said, “Instead of focusing on the two years of learning loss our children have experienced; Instead of focusing on testing scores and academic excellence; Instead of preparing our youth to be successful contributors to society; The NEA, the non-profit section of the teachers union, is more focused on woke political agendas and making our public taxpayer funded public schools indoctrination centers.

“This didn’t even work in woke San Francisco when they put renaming schools as a priority instead of getting children back in the classroom. This issue is not a partisan issue, this is an education issue. If we continue to allow the teacher union bosses to dictate everything from the president, CDC, curriculum, etc. every single country will pass by us educationally in just a few short years,” said Schillinger, who founded Keeping Kids in School and cofounded Back to School PA PAC.  She was also a Republican candidate for lt. governor.
