With school board elections beginning in less than a week, a change in school board administration is possible for parents who are tired of liberal administrators feeding their children woke ideologies.

Because school board elections are nonpartisan, it can be difficult for voters to know candidates’ values and political ideologies. Thankfully, iVoterGuide provides voters with candidate evaluations and political grading.

The site grades candidates using a political ideology scale based on their answers to a questionnaire provided by iVoterGuide, as well as documented political scorecards, contributions, and endorsements.

iVoterGuide’s grading scale ranges from labeling candidates as very liberal to very conservative. The “insufficient information” label is used for candidates who refused to fill out the questionnaire.

Don Stroud, iVoterGuide’s director of strategic operation, said the site includes the “insufficient information” label to show which candidates are “willfully lacking transparency.”

The site includes evaluations of nearly 300 candidates across more than 140 races in 58 Texas school districts.

“Some of the candidates we have evaluated should be nowhere near children or have any influence on policy impacting students,” said Stroud. “Unfortunately, they are likely to be elected because they have the best ‘ballot name’—unless enough parents and taxpayers take the time to get informed and then go vote.”

According to Stroud, school board elections are typically low-turnout elections. He described them as having a “low turnout of responsible citizens, but high turnout of those advocating agendas hostile to families.”

Stroud encouraged voters to become aware of candidates and what they stand for, then to go vote and tell others to vote.

Early voting in Texas’ local government elections runs from April 24 through May 2. Election Day is May 6. Not all school districts have elections this year, and some school districts have their elections in November.
