Leftists, recruited by teachers’ unions with woke anti-Christian ideologies, have made their way onto school boards, causing much grief for parents as they wonder why their children are no longer sharing the values they have been taught at home.

While the source of the problem goes far beyond the influence of school boards, as we have repeatedly demonstrated, some good districts have actually refused to succumb to the radical mandates to indoctrinate children with CRT, “comprehensive” sex ed, and much more, because of the conservative people elected to these local boards, including people of faith.

It is still our intention to encourage parents to remove their children from government schools, but we know that this is not always possible and that our neighbor’s children are stuck in these indoctrination centers. It is vitally important for taxpayers to get behind good solid candidates for school board.

The Primary is now past and the Consolidated Election will be held on April 4th, in which many communities will elect candidates to fill local positions such as school board. These candidates are as local as you can get — citizens from your community – running to set policies that effect you and your family directly. With a little research on Facebook or, for example, you can find ways to connect with these candidates.

To help you and your neighbors navigate this critical election, IFI has put together a list of 10 questions for school board candidates. We need your help to get them into the hands of the candidates and then out to voters. You can send these questionnaires to candidates via Facebook messenger, email or contact them by another means and ask them to answer and return the questionnaire.

Once answered and returned, we encourage you to share the responses on your social media pages and return them to IFI by email or through the IFI Facebook page.

We hope this effort bears fruit. Our goal is to post them according to school district, making them available to other voters. But we can’t do this without your help to make the candidates positions known more widely.

We only have 5 weeks, so please start your candidate research now. Start by going to your county clerk’s (NOT your circuit court clerk) election page to get a list of candidates. Try searching, for example, (Fill in the county) list of candidates. You should be able to find a list in a matter of a few clicks. If not, call their office and ask where to obtain the list.

Here is a list of clerk offices by county. There are also 8 cities with election boards – Chicago, Bloomington, Aurora, Danville, East St. Louis, Galesburg, Peoria, and Rockford.

CLICK HERE for the school board candidate questionnaire. Forward this questionnaire to candidates by mail or message them through Facebook messenger. You can send an attachment that way. Or look them up on and mail it with a self-addressed return envelope.

Thanks for your help!
