Many political analysts hold the view that one of the foundations of politics is the local school board, where moms and dads, business operators, and many others first get a start.

If that’s the case, look for Florida to move even deeper into conservative territory, as school boards there this week saw a massive flip from liberal to conservative.

According to a Breitbart report, a founder for the 1776 Project PAC, which is working to support those conservatives, was rejoicing after Tuesday’s results.

“We saw massive election victories all throughout the state of Florida tonight,” Ryan Girdusky said. “It shows the desire of parents and residents across the country for some normalcy in our education system, and that means pushing against transgender ideology, critical race theory, critical gender ideology, and equity which destroys merit in education.”

Filmmaker and activist Christopher Rufo had explained online how leftists were thwarting education in the state’s public schools, giving as an example a father who revealed how Clay County’s school officials were secretly helping his daughter “transition” to a boy.

The 1776 Project Pac posted some of the state’s results:

And the Florida Times-Union also noted the wave:

A list also was posted of the “flipped seats.”

The Breitbart report noted, “Florida school board elections have been a major political battleground this cycle, with big names like Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Rep. Byron Donalds (R) making endorsements and joining the campaign trail.”

The board elections are, in fact, general elections, so Tuesday’s winners now are members of the boards.

The report noted Sarasota flipped from a 3-2 leftist majority to a 4-1 conservative majority, the Clay County board now is a 3-2 conservative majority after all three conservatives won, the Duval County board “flipped conservative,” and Miami-Dade now is the largest school district in the country with a conservative-majority board.

Martin County saw the same result.
