On this episode Andrew speaks with Loudoun County (VA) parent activist Ian Prior about how his local school system became the epicenter of the national parent’s movement in 2021, leading to the surprise election of Glenn Youngkin as governor.

Prior shares stories from contentious school board meetings that got national media coverage, including the story of father Scott Smith, whose daughter was sexually assaulted in a school bathroom as a direct result of the Board’s transgender bathroom policies.

We also discuss why the movement is dominated by “Mama Bears” and why there aren’t more dads involved, and where the parent’s movement goes from here.

Ian Prior is senior advisor at America First Legal and founder and executive director of the organization, Fight for Schools. He is the author of the recently published, “Parents of the World Unite: How to Save Our Schools From the Left’s Radical Agenda.” Prior is featured often on Fox News and other media outlets.
