Education First Alliance Launches a Political Action Group to Defeat Candidates Supporting CRT
By Sloan Rachmuth, March 1
The group’s leadership team is made up of moms and teachers, and it will enlist the help of its thousands of activists already on the ground to campaign for Conservative candidates.
The North Carolina-based group Education First Alliance has reorganized as a national political action committee to support Conservative candidates in Congressional and State-House elections in 2022.
Education First Alliance was founded in January 2021, as a group dedicated to restoring merit and morality to North Carolina’s education system. Besides opposing critical race theory programs at the state level, the group pushes to remove social-emotional policies, psychiatric screenings, and pornography from schools through journalism and grassroots activism.
“At the beginning of the movement, we believed we could improve schools district-by-district, but now we see that the state and federal governments have taken away local control through sustained government overreach,” said Education First Alliance President, Sloan Rachmuth.
“Also, the education lobby in state-houses is more formidable than parents and teachers because they can target legislators and primary them if they aren’t passing certain bills. Our PAC will take on the Progressive education lobby, giving Conservative families and educators a powerful voice in statehouses and at the federal level,” Rachmuth continued.
The PAC will support Conservative candidates who will decimate the size of the federal and state education bureaucracy, which costs taxpayers billions while shifting the focus away from preparing future generations of national leaders toward progressive indoctrination.
The group also prioritizes backing candidates who will enact legislation preventing school programs based on race and gender, as well as candidates who oppose giving far-left groups access to the public school system.
“The Virginia election showed that parents won’t tolerate passivity from elected officials when it comes to protecting children’s and parents’ rights”, said board member Dr. Nancy Andersen. “Parents and teachers who value the love of learning and believe America offers unique opportunities for seeking truth and gaining wisdom deserve representation at all levels of government, yet they don’t have it.”
Education First Alliance will focus on 10 to 15 races and will set itself apart from other political groups by being more transparent about its team, operations, and spending. It has mostly raised donations from disaffected Republicans frustrated with the unwillingness of the GOP establishment to confront Progressives hell-bent on radicalizing America’s children.
The group will use its large network of parents and grandparents to initiate in-person, meaningful encounters with real citizens to promote candidates who know that the future of America’s position in the world depends on addressing the crisis in education.
“We want to act as fiercely in supporting Conservative candidates as we are in fighting for parental rights and against racializing and sexualizing children,” said Rachmuth.
