The creator of the prominent social media account “Libs of TikTok,” Chaya Raichik, was recently appointed to serve on the Oklahoma State Department of Education’s Library Media Advisory Committee.
Raichik has been an outspoken critic of the left’s efforts to indoctrinate children in schools and lower educational standards. Her social media account “Libs of TikTok” rose to prominence after exposing the grave state of the U.S. educational system caused by Democratic policies, according to Fox News.
In a statement, Oklahoma State Superintendent of Public Instruction Ryan Walters announced Raichik’s appointment, noting that he is “proud to have her on our team.”
No one has done more to expose what the radical left is all about than @ChayaRaichik10 and @libsoftiktok. Her's is a powerful voice to protect Oklahoma kids from porn in schools and woke indoctrination.

Walters pointed out Raichik’s efforts to remove explicit, lewd content in schools, specifically books that have been promoted by Democrats.
“Because of her work, families across the country know just what is going on in schools around the country. Her unique perspective is invaluable as part of my plan to make Oklahoma schools safer for kids and friendly to parents. Chaya has a much-needed and powerful voice as well as a tremendous platform that will benefit Oklahoma students and their families,” Walters said.
Raichik responded to Walters’ announcement by saying she will work to remove inappropriate content from schools.
Shortly after the revelation of Raichik’s appointment, Oklahoma state Rep. Jacob Rosecrants (D) accused Walters of being “way into far-right national stuff rather than, ya know, superintendent-ing our public schools here in OK.”
Walters’ decision to appoint Raichik came after he advocated for the elimination of “woke” library standards and lewd books in Oklahoma schools.
In March 2023, the Oklahoma State Board of Education fell in line with the left’s ideology, voting to require schools to notify parents of their child’s “gender identity” or pronouns.
Walters has consistently spoken out against Democrats’ efforts to indoctrinate children in schools. In December 2023, he expressed support for a state bill requiring public schools to display the 10 Commandments in all classrooms.
“The breakdown in classroom discipline over the past 40 years is no small measure due to the elimination of the Ten Commandments as guideposts for student behavior,” Walters said at the time. “I will continue to fight against state-sponsored atheism that has caused society to go downhill.”
