The Great Parent Revolt, by Katharine C. Gorka

One thing the coronavirus commissars didn’t count on was that locked at home parents would have a lot more time to see what their kids were studying in school. A lot of parents haven’t liked what they’ve seen, and they’re doing something about it. From Katharine C. Gorka at realclearpolitics.com:
