Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody joins Fox Across America With guest host Harry Hurley to talk about how the COVID-19 pandemic gave parents a much better idea of what their kids were being taught in school.
“No one wants to go through a crisis like COVID. But of course, what happens when folks start sending children home and having the parents be involved at home? I count myself and all of those parents who were struggling to try and maintain, you know, their full time jobs and educate their children. What happened was I don’t think anyone ever imagined that this was going on in our schools. Now, we knew that the unions had a heavy hand and the teachers controlled a lot of lesson planning. But I don’t think parents knew the extent to which information was being shared or pushed upon our very young children. And so as awful as COVID was, it did force parents to realize and acknowledge, and now we are all cognizant, of what was happening within our schools. So what happened then when we said, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, this cannot happen. Our children are vulnerable. We need to protect them. Parents need to have a say in what’s happening. Then you see these other states and these school districts that are like, no parents. You don’t have the right now have a say in your children. Now that you’re stepping up, now that you’re putting your foot down, now that you’re saying you want to say in what we’re teaching them, no, no, we’re going to just take away that. You can see that push in all these states across the nation.”
