National School Boards Association apology 'too little, too late': 保護者擁護教育学長

ニーリーはNSBAを言った “送信するべきではなかった” 彼らの手紙, それがみなした反対で連邦支援を要求した “国内テロやヘイトクライムの一形態に相当します。”

Shortly after NSBA’s letter was sent to the ホワイトハウス, Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a memorandum that instructed the FBI to take the lead on addressing threats against school officials.


It raises a huge amount of questions about what kinds of coordination were happening behind the scenes, who asked for this letter, and how the 司法省 was able to turn this around so quickly,” Neily said.

The apology was addressed to NSBA members, and Neily questioned whether the association would apologize to the parents who were vilified as well.

What about the parents?” 彼女は尋ねた. “What about the millions of parents who were labeled domestic terrorists by this organization? We demand an apology as well.

The takeaway from the entire situation, Neily said, is that the NSBA is no match for parents who are upset about the curriculum being taught to their children.

I think what this shows is that a $ 19 million trade association with direct links to the White House is no match for a group of mad moms,” 彼女は言いました. “There is strength in numbers.

Neily said despite actions taken both by Garland and the NSBA, she believes parents at the grassroots level can make real change.

There is opposition to these ideas and how these things are being shoved down our throat, it crosses party lines, it crosses racial lines, ethnic lines, and so there is a real groundswell of opposition to what is going on and I’m really optimistic that if people keep pushing, we can affect significant change,” 彼女は言いました.

“など, I’m very heartened by what’s going on, and I think this wave is going to continue.
