BEST Dad of the Month (September) – Chad Thompson

FreedomWorks’ BEST team proudly recognizes Chad Thompson of Gilbert, Arizona as the BEST Dad of the Month for his persistent presence in standing up for the children and families of his community.

As a father of multiple students in Gilbert Public Schools, Chad is frightened and furious about the politically charged curricula and policies being welcomed with open arms into his local schools. Curricula infused with critical race theory, social-emotional learning, and comprehensive sex education, along with policies allowing students identifying as the opposite of their birth gender being allowed to go the bathroom, change in locker rooms, and shower with students of the opposite sex, have motivated him to run for a seat on the GPS School Board.

“These policies and programs are divisive and destructive. They are aimed directly at our children to separate children from their parents and prioritize social awareness over learning and academic achievement,” says Chad.

Parents need a voice, and our students need an education. Chad plans to dedicate his time and energy to listening to parents and ensuring that Gilbert Public Schools is the best for students, families, and the community. Learn more and help Chad to victory on November 8 at
