A Florida parent received a standing ovation after calling for a mass exodus from the public school system. Quisha King’s declaration came during during the annual “Pray, Vote, Stand” summit in Virginia on Thursday.
King said she believed a mass exodus would send the message that the liberal education system did not have the right to indoctrinate children. Her comments came as a reaction to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s announcement the FBI would criminalize parents who have spoken out at school board meetings.
“With this FBI thing, it just made me realize what else are we supposed to do? Standing up to these people doesn’t seem to matter,” she expressed. “I mean, we have, all of us, we’ve been at these school board meetings, we’ve been voicing our opinions, we’re writing articles, we’re emailing teachers. We’re doing all that stuff and they don’t care. I’m like the only thing left to do is to just peace out.”

King went on to concede it may be difficult for most families to pull their children out of public school, but a coordinated exodus all at once was necessary in this moment to send a clear message. King previously drew national attention in June for publicly speaking out against critical race theory and now worked with the group Moms for Liberty.
