    At the start of a new school year already polarized over mask-wearing, school leaders are sparring with parentsover race- and ethnicity-focused lessons, with activists threatening to take their jobs. The pandemic and the debate about race are blurring together.Some conservative parents already frustrated by mask mandates have joined the fight against how systemic racism is taught because of the lessons they heard during remote learning. The issues are increasingly intertwined, creating a furor that‘s turned mundane school board meetings into volatile affairs. In many districts, members of Facebook groups that formed to advocate for opening schools are now advocating for changes in curriculum — and a change in leadership to accomplish both. School board members are now on the front lines of two culture wars. The Proud Boys, a far-right extremist group known for encouraging political violence, showed up twice to school board meetings in Nashua, N.H.to object to how racism is discussed...

    The patchwork nature of local government also gives Republicans opportunities to test drive their rhetoric on the issue before fully deploying it in their efforts to retake the House in next year’s midterm elections. Most Americans have no opinion about critical race theory, according to a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll — but most Republicans do, and 42 percent see it very unfavorably. A quarter of independents felt the same way, while only 5 percent of Democrats shared that viewpoint. Some Republicans hope denouncing race-focused curricula and promoting Donald Trump’s vision for a “patriotic” education will remain key wedge issues that foster new interest in the GOP. Democrats have mostly avoided addressing critical race theory in a significant way, aside from a Senate vote opposing the efforts to ban the teachings. One effort to do so backfired when Biden’s Education Department walked backa plan to incentivize teaching about systemic racism, bowing to Republican pressure. Education...

    The grassroots power that comes frominvoking children in the debate over race and other issueshas been obvious — from record-breaking involvement in local elections and party organizations to rage-filled school board meetings and even threats of violence. It doesn’t look like that’s going to end soon. Loudoun County in Virginia saw furious protests lead to new organizations calling for the replacement of sitting board members. The organization, Fight For Schools, says it is nonpartisan and is not aimed at changing any single policy, though critical race theory and Covid-19 have been at the center of the conversations about recalling six of the nine board members. The organization has raised over $130,000, hosts events with the likes of Ben Carson and sells its own line of merchandise, which at one point included t-shirts with the faces of board members up for recall. Not all of the local movements get so much traction. In Oregon, four conservative parents ran together for their scho...
