In the latest episode of Take Back Our Schools, Bethany and Andrew interview political strategist and father of three, Rory Cooper, about the recent election of Glenn Youngkin as Virginia’s new governor. We discuss Rory’s experiences organizing parents against Covid school closures and the role that parents played in the recent election.

Bethany and Andrew also talk about the enormous damage Covid policies are doing to our children and discuss whether the new “Omicron” variant will shut down schools again.

This is the third installment of this series. Episode 1 introduces the series and Episode 2 featured journalist Suzy Weiss about her two recent pieces for Bari Weiss’s Common Sense Substack.

    Very informative.  It is hard to believe that a lot of parents don’t know how little danger there is for kids from Covid.  From my perspective, it is unnecessary to vaccinate them, especially since natural immunity from getting Covid is so superior to the “vaccine“.

    Abolish compulsory schooling – the original anti-parent/anti-child mandate.

    Ricochet Audio Network: whether the new “Omicron” variant will shut down schools again.

    Of course it will shut down the schools in blue states.  Democrat governors will use any excuse to lock their states down.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Gretchen Whitmer shut down Michigan because she got a yeast infection.

    OTOH, it would prevent the spread . . .

    I realize that to be able to attend private school is not easy for everyone.  However, my kids attend small Christian school (the tuition is much lower than what the state uses for public school kids). Since Fall of 2020, the school has operated in person, 5 days a week, with the most of the normal activities including sports teams & choirs practices. Yes, there are some COVID cases, but all of it contracted outside of school. I am so thankful we were spared all of the things they are talking about in this podcast. All the sacrifices we make is worth it for sure.

    Thanks for the interview. I’m in northern Virginia but long past having a kid in school and he never went to public school. However, as a taxpayer, I want to keep up with what is going on and should have a say.
