VOTERS REJECT WOKE EDUCATION IN RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTAhttps://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/06/voters-reject-woke-education-in-rapid-city-south-dakota.php
Rapid City, South Dakota held elections for its school board this week. The result? Two incumbents, including the school board president, went down to defeat. Insurgent candidates won all four contested seats.
I understand that an organization called South Dakota Parents Involved in Education (SDPIE) played a major role in this election. I understand the issues it raised included opposition to the teaching of critical race theory and disrespect for the American flag and pledge of allegiance. (Reportedly, some of the teachers in this district have been discouraging students from saying the pledge.) I understand the results to be a rejection of wokeness in the city’s schools.
