This tweet, piggybacking off of a piece in The Nation about how Republicans turned “school choice” into a losing issue, has been garnering a lot of attention. Jennifer Berkshire is co-author of “A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door: The Dismantling of Public Education and the Future of School.” The Amazon description? “If America’s public schools don’t survive the COVID-19 pandemic, it won’t just be due to the virus. Opponents of public education have long sought to dismantle our system of free, universal, and taxpayer-funded schooling.… Now, A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door takes their analyses a step further, addressing an urgent question: Why is the right so fixated on dismantling public education in the United States?”

Note that *parents’ rights* is now some sort of right-wing movement to destroy democracy.

Isn’t it?

Lefties like Joy Reid think that critical race theory is a “right-wing bogeyman” and then come out and reveal the real bogeyman is “parents’ rights.”
