I take it as a good sign that parents are getting pissed enough to show up and complain.

I found out about Tom Macdonald a few months ago. Really like his stuff. It's boilerplate anti-woke, but he puts a lot of energy into his songs and videos.

  Well, I have a friend who is a teacher.  He has had two mandatory "training sessions" that were all out CRT.  The people pushing the shit screech you must define it for them and say it is not in the classroom (yet every teacher is being beaten over the head with it).  So parents being pissed still means jack shit IMO.  This is just the school district where I live (which is a pretty red county) so I have no idea if real action is taking place beyond people complaining, and them summarily being labeled racists.  So we will see.

Not necessarily. There have been multiple events of parents showing up for school board meetings and ripping into them, to the point of at least one board fleeing the damn meeting.

They are NOT having it all their way. And they only have themselves to blame.

  That is simply hopium IMO.  People complaining out loud means nothing.  It is like getting a rise out of Rand Paul jumping down fauci's throat for shit anyone with a modicum of sense would have long theorized.  Or disclosure about handling of emails that would have sent a grunt to prison.  No one got punished, and never will.    I will believe it when superintendants get fired and school board members replaced whole sale.

Trond:
Complaining out loud is what it takes if you ask me. People are generally terrified of being “the only one” who thinks something for themselves.

   I agree with that.  But without follow up action, it means nothing beyond noise.
