Anti-school choice GOP candidates endorsed by teachers unions lose elections

Parents have grown increasingly sick and tired of politicians taking part in their children’s educations, and that sentiment is starting to show itself in elections, no matter which party one is in.

According to the Washington Examiner, that was evidenced recently in a string of state lawmaker elections, specifically regarding several GOP candidates who happened to be on the side against school choice, who had also gained the support of massive teachers unions, which are also very unpopular with voters across the country right now.

“In Iowa, Kentucky, and Texas, a slew of Republican state lawmakers who bucked their party’s long-standing support of school choice and in some cases received endorsements and donations from teachers unions all lost their respective primaries in recent weeks,” the Examiner noted.

Corey DeAngelis, the director of research at the school choice advocacy group American Federation for Children, explained to the outlet why this trend is emerging.

“School choice is emerging as a litmus-test issue for Republican primary voters,” DeAngelis said.

He added: “At this point, any Republican opposing school choice and parental rights in education is essentially begging to end their political careers.”

“Opposing parental rights in education after the past two years is becoming a form of political suicide,” he continued. School choice is on the Republican Party platform, [and] 82% of Republican voters support school choice nationwide.”

As the November midterms near, and Republicans on the fence about school choice see what’s happening, one shouldn’t be surprised to suddenly see positions change for political expediency. Even with Republicans set to make historic gains, right-leaning voters will ensure that they only back candidates who fall on the same side of this particular issue.
