Are you worried about the rapid and continued decline of the education system in California? Outraged by the toxic curriculum being pushed by Left-wing groups in our classrooms? You’re not alone — and Reform California is hoping you’ll consider joining the fight to change the status quo.
After successfully helping reform-minded candidates win a significant number of seats on targeted school boards across the state in 2022, Reform California is expanding its efforts with its campaign in 2024 to recruit and support candidates for school boards who will respect input from parents, remove controversial curriculum from the classroom, and fix failing schools.
Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California, explained that while progress was made in addressing these issues with key wins in 2022, there is still a long way to go to save the state’s broken schools.
“Parents from all political backgrounds are shocked by the extreme and divisive curriculum being taught in the classroom and by the disrespectful treatment of parents by school officials and board members,” DeMaio explained.
“On top of that, parents see that student academic achievement is plummeting, but school officials seem focused on divisive political topics rather than doing what is best for the children,” he continued.
DeMaio believes the 2024 election will deliver key changes in school board leadership across the state — but only if good candidates step up and run for office — and if they have the resources they need to win.
In 2022, parents and concerned community members across the state filed to run for positions on their local school boards in historic numbers. DeMaio says that this frightened well-funded Left-wing groups, who responded with massive mobilization in California to keep Left-wing incumbent school board members in office.
Campaign finance disclosures show union bosses poured millions into those school board races, and on top of that, California’s liberal media wrote numerous one-sided hit pieces on reform-minded school board candidates.
“Coming into 2022, we saw many parents and community members run for school boards that were energized to affect change — and many still defeated Left-wing incumbents despite their funding and media advantages,” explained DeMaio. “Just imagine how many more races we can win in 2024 if we have the resources to compete?”
DeMaio says that parents and community members that are interested in running for office or demanding change from their school boards should contact Reform California at 619-786-8019. DeMaio also recommends that concerned parents should sign up to join a parents coalition in their area and contribute to the campaign if they are able.
“We cannot wage this battle alone — we rely on the support of grassroots contributors and volunteers, so this is a fight that everyone needs to join today — our children are depending on us to act,” DeMaio concluded.
