Texas’ traditionally sleepy school board races are suddenly attracting attention — and money

As conservative parents become more frustrated with how school boards handled the pandemic, once-ignored school board elections are becoming better funded.

Parents demonstrate in front of the Frisco Independent School District building demanding a mask mandate for the district and improved sanitary and air conditions for students in Frisco on Sept. 10, 2021. The demonstration was organized by Unified Parents of Frisco, formed in response to the pandemic and its consequences on their children's lives and education.
