的 “全力以赴” 主持人发推文, “It’s been interesting how much ‘education’ and schools as a focus of right-wing grievance has been consistent even as the particular grievance keeps shifting. A year ago it was going to be all about how schools were still closed! Then they opened and it was both masks and crt.”
Education has become a top issue regarding the Virginia gubernatorial race between former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin. Parents throughout Virginia as well as the country have openly voiced their disagreement with many school board policies including school shutdowns, 面具任务, 和 批判种族理论 curricula.
Framing the issue as a “grievance” brought on by the right led to criticism from several people on both sides of the political aisle.
National Review writer Alexandra DeSanctis Marr tweeted, “Why is education in quotation marks, and what part of this is difficult for you to understand? Parents want their kids to be in school, not being forced to wear cloths on their faces for no good reason, and not being indoctrinated into Marxist identity politics.”
Washington Post writer David Weigel tweeted, “They’re very closely linked. When I talked to @Jack4NJ about where these issues came from, he said remote learning: ‘Parents got up close and personal with the school curriculum and a great many do not like what they see now.’”
Fox News columnist Karol Markowicz tweeted, “It’s because parents, and not just ‘right-wing’ ones, realized our public school system is a total, top to bottom, s–tshow. And losing school for a year because Randi Weingarten said so is still kind of a big deal to parents, even today.”
Various other media outlets have accused movements against school boards as being orchestrated by right-wing operatives. The Associated Press framed the issue with the headline, “GOP push to politicize school board races gets election test.” 上个月, 的 纽约时报 也 专注 on political leanings, 写作 “Republicans hope that concerns about critical race theory can help them in the midterm elections.”
