Pennsylvania School Boards Assoc. votes to withdraw from Nation School Boards Assoc. | Beaufort County Now | N. C. should do the same thing

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Human Events is reporting:

The Pennsylvania School Boards Association is one of 11 state boards that are officially withdrawing from the National School Boards Association following the infamous letter to the White House. 

As previously reported by Human Events News, the National School Boards Association wrote a letter to the White House claiming that school boards face “domestic terrorism and hate crimes” from critics of mask mandates and promoters of “propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory.” 

In response, Merrick Garland said the FBI and U.S. attorneys would have meetings with federal, state and local leaders to form “strategies for addressing threats.” 

In a statement following a vote to cancel membership, the Pennsylvania School Boards Association cited the letter as the “final straw” in their decision, per BizPacReview

“The Pennsylvania School Boards Association was not consulted prior to the letter being sent by the National School Boards Association to President Biden,” chief communications officer Annette Stevenson said. “We were not asked for input nor discussion on its content.” 

“PSBA has always encouraged local school boards to welcome input and remarks from community members and all stakeholders, and Pennsylvania has had a long history of relying on local school district control to ensure that the will of the community and parents is best represented,” Stevenson added. “PSBA is strongly adverse to the lack of civility and violence being witnessed in some districts, and we support that local districts need to be able to work with their local and regional law enforcement to address such safety concerns.”

Withdrawing membership would be a goo first step in restoring confidence in NC education. Unfortunately we have a long way to go.
