NEISD board election includes candidates backed by parents’ rights PAC

A political action committee whose goal is to advance parental rights in education has thrown its support behind three candidates for the North East Independent School District board of trustees in an effort to unseat the incumbents, part of a nationwide trend of parents targeting board elections to influence school.

The San Antonio-based Parents United for Freedom PAC has raised more than $10,700 to back three candidates for the NEISD board, according to the most recent campaign finance report filed by the committee. With two weeks before early voting begins in the May 7 election, the PAC has spent just $32 in unitemized expenses.

“Parents United for Freedom is a grassroots effort to defend and protect parental rights within the school system and to reclaim our schools from the harmful agendas being promoted,” the PAC’s website states. “Through coalition-building within our communities, we are fighting induction in the classrooms throughout San Antonio, Texas.”
