It was exposed that The National School Board Association was talking to the White House before a letter was released likening parents protesting at school board events domestic terrorists.
They later apologized after it was exposed.
The National School Board Association communicated with the White House before releasing a letter requesting federal intervention to investigate whether alleged threats leveled by parents against school-board members qualify as domestic terrorism under the Patriot Act.
Email correspondence obtained by nonprofit Parents Defending Education and first reported by the Washington Free Beacon shows that White House officials coordinated with the NSBA to iron out the details of the letter before it was officially published.
NSBA interim executive director Chip Slaven wrote, “in talks over several weeks with White House staff, they requested additional information on some of the specific threats, so the letter also details many of the incidents that have been occurring.”
In response to the letter, Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a memo directing the Justice Department to collaborate with the FBI and federal, state, and local law enforcement to probe and potentially prosecute parents for making violent threats against school-board members.
Not only did the NSBA not consult or inform at least 19 state school-board association chapters before sending the letter to the Biden administration, but the group also failed to consult its own board of directors before sending it.
Now, we have this.
The Ohio School Boards Association trustees voted to leave national school boards group over this.
