Voters dealt a decisive blow to advocates of a school “diversity” plan in Southlake, Texas, Tuesday, electing a third straight school board member on promises to reject the plan and fight Critical Race Theory-inspired doctrine in the school system.
Andrew Yeager, a regional ad sales executive for NBCUniversal-owned TV stations, beat former teacher Stephanie Williams for a spot on the Carroll Independent School District board, receiving 65.4% of the roughly 9,400 votes cast. Williams, who campaigned in support of the diversity plan, received 34.6% of the vote, according to NBC News.
Yeager’s run was backed by the Southlake Families PAC, a conservative group funding candidates for the school board who oppose the diversity plan. The plan, the group says, “includes some of the most extreme liberal positions in the history of Texas public education.”
