Michigan mother Caitlin Reynolds said parents across the political spectrum are “exhausto” by the Democrats’ response to theseemingly never-ending pandemic.

For the Michigan Democratic Party to think that the parents are not the clientele of the public school system—it’s the other way around. We pay the taxes. That’s why they’re public schools. They are publicly funded,” Reynolds said.

A Saturday post made by the Michigan Democrats on their official Facebook page criticized the parents who want to play a role in what public education teaches their children.

Not sure where this ‘parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids’ is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire,” the post read.

The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught,” the Michigan Democratic Party’s post continued. “It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.

The post was deleted Monday morning and came alongside an apology from the group, who asserted the original message did notreflecttheir views andshould not be misinterpreted” tener un “statement of supportfrom Democratic officials or candidates.
