"Teachers can be silenced, but you can't fire a parent"
"Teacher morale will improve overnight when we get our four candidates elected"
"Parents, teachers students rallying together to win schools back"
Conservatives in Douglas County Colorado won school board election by vilifying the teacher union and dividing parents and teachers in the local community. This was done through a well-financed campaign by ALEC and friends.
ALEC approved school board members get in, the board silences the administration, the administration silences the teachers and the parents are left in the dark to figure out who turned out the lights on their children's education. Looks like some parents are trying to put the lights back on.
