GOP Leader McCarthy backs parents, voters who tossed three San Francisco School Board members out

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., came out in support of San Francisco residents who overwhelmingly approved of a vote Tuesday to recall three of the city’s school board members.”Parents are standing up to have their voices heard,” McCarthy said in a statement. “Over the past two years they have watched liberal school boards in their communities prioritize renaming schools over re-opening classrooms.”School boards have used ‘equity’ and ‘social justice’ as an excuse to discriminate and lower standards for children. This is exactly what the San Francisco School Board did and why three of their members were recalled in a landslide,” McCarthy continued.SAN FRANCISCO RECALLS 3 SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS: ‘A CLEAR MESSAGE’

Critics asserted that school board President Gabriela López, Vice President Faauuga Moliga and Commissioner Alison Collins pushed progressive politics rather than act in the best interest of children during the pandemic. According to the San Francisco Department of Elections, voters agreed.”Last night’s results follow the clear message Virginia parents sent last November and the outcry that House Republicans have heard from constituents across the country: parents deserve a say and children deserve a quality education,” McCarthy continued.

We want kids to strive and succeed, not be stifled by disrupted learning and politics in the classroom. This is what we will continue to fight for because children’s education must be a national priority,” the Republican leader added.
