With the days, hours, and minutes winding down to Election Day on Nov. 8, voters around the country are paying attention to school board elections like never before, parent activists say.

Previously, there was a “disconnect between the citizens and the school board,” Tiffany Justice, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, told The Epoch Times. But no more, she said.

But parents suddenly seem to be realizing that being a member of a school board “is an important political position,” she said. “We want to have an impact on who gets to make those types of decisions for our kids.”

“They vote on the budget, and the budget helps them to prioritize how they’re going to know what’s important,” Justice said. “I think Americans woke up to the fact that their school board members were in charge of making all kinds of decisions, and they didn’t even know who their school board members were.”

Getting to know your school board representative is important, she advised. And choosing those elected officials is a process that should involve great care.

To help voters heading to the ballot boxes, Moms for Liberty announced endorsements this week for more than 270 school board candidates across the country. People can learn more about the candidates chosen for support by contacting local Moms for Liberty chapters.

“We’re so incredibly proud of the chapters around the country going through the process of vetting and endorsing candidates,” Justice said. “It’s not an easy thing to do. It takes time, and it’s something they’ve never done before. That can be scary. You have to really put yourself out there to your community.”

But that’s what Moms for Liberty is all about. The group enlists members who have the “desire to stand up for parental rights at all levels of government,” and are lending their knowledge and experience to help parents fight those battles, Justice said.
