LePage unveils plan to topple Maine’s ‘woke’ education system

Former Gov. Paul LePage unveiled an education platform Monday that trotted out some old chestnuts from prior administrations, such as school choice and consolidation, but included a new plan to topple Maine’s “woke” education system with a Parents Bill of Rights. “Maine needs a governor that will do whatever it takes to improve the opportunities of our children going forward,” LePage said at the Buker Community Center Augusta. “While Janet Mills has focused on pushing extreme woke agendas on our kids that is divisive and age inappropriate, I am focusing on getting back to the basics.”
