To be frank, California Parent Alliance (CPA) started out as a group of angry parents. Like you, we saw the consequences of trusting school districts, school boards, and teacher's unions to do the right thing while we were not watching. We saw what they were quietly doing without our knowledge and input. We also saw them hiding things that they knew we as parents would not like nor agree to.
As like minded angry parents in Ventura County began to voice their displeasure (putting it nicely) they discovered they were not alone. As time went on they began to organize and soon California Parent Alliance began to take form. This group of parents have been very instrumental in educating parents in LA and Ventura County while organizing rallies and conferences on CRT, Sex Education, and gender issues to name a few.
At the same time, angry parents in Orange County had come to the same realization. They too had become complacent and trusted the same radicals that had taken hold of their children's schools. These parents also began to organize and soon they had success in ousting 3 radical school board members in the Placentia Yorba Linda School District and replacing them with 3 angry parents. This early success has made a world of difference.
It did not take long for the groups of parents saw each others success and understood that our successes locally was due to education (of parents), organization, and in numbers. Therefore, Orange County parents have joined CPA and we are spreading and organization chapters throughout the State. And we would love to have you join us too.
