Education Lobbyists Ask Biden's Help to Deal with Anti-CRT Parents

  • Flyover Country

By: Konrad Holden

In Brief: 
The National School Board Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to President Biden asking for the assistance of “federal law enforcement” to “stop threats and acts of violence against...public school board members.” The NSBA believes that school officials are being targeted because of their inclusion of Critical Race Theory in the classroom. The NSBA denies that CRT is being taught anywhere and calls the claim “propaganda.”

The Background: 
Parents all across the country have been rising up to ask the question, “What are you teaching my child?”

This question, among others, has shown the true left-wing colors of many school board officials across the country. 

Teachers have been quitting left and right because they are unwilling to teach Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the classroom. CRT teaches students to view everything through a lens of race and to be partial to race groups that have historically been victimized, particularly Blacks, without regard to individual actions.

Despite little evidence of violence against school board members, the NSBA asked the White House to lend federal law enforcement to keep them safe, saying, “Education leaders are under an immediate threat.”

The NSBA says that the claim that schools teach CRT is propaganda, even though just a month ago the United States Conference of Mayors publicly supported CRT in K-12 schools.

Notable Quotes: 

“We sent a letter to President Biden this morning asking for federal assistance to stop threats and acts of violence against public schoolchildren, public school board members, and other public school district officials and educators.” - National School Board Association

“#CriticalRaceTheory is not taught in K-12 schools. The right’s culture warriors are labeling any discussion of race, racism or discrimination as such to try to make it toxic. They’re bullying teachers to try and keep them from teaching the truth.” - Randi Weingarten, American Federation of Teachers
