Virginia School Boards Assoc Cuts Ties With National Org After “Domestic Terrorism” Letter About Parents

Virginia School Boards Assoc Cuts Ties With National Org After “Domestic Terrorism” Letter About Parents

Cites persistence “in ineffective behaviors that negatively effect state school board associations, member school board divisions, and the children served by our K-12 public schools as is evidenced by the recent letter authored by the Interim CEO and the President of NSBA to the Biden Administration.”

The Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) is the latest state group to end its membership in the National School Boards Association (NSBA). NSBA, if you’ll recall, wrote a letter to the Department of Justice calling for legal action against parent protestors, the catalyst for Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Biden DOJ branding concerned parents as “domestic terrorists.”

In a memo to its member school boards, the leaders of VSBA explained the decision was “made in response to a persistent pattern of dysfunction within the NSBA organization and among those charged with its governance.” VSBA’s announcement comes on the heels of fourteen other states who’ve cut ties with NSBA, and an additional eleven other state school board associations denouncing NSBA’s outright attack on parents and parental rights.

In the executive summary of its motion to part ways with NSBA, VSBA stated its opposition to the national association’s persistence “in ineffective behaviors that negatively effect state school board associations, member school board divisions, and the children served by our K-12 public schools as is evidenced by the recent letter authored by the Interim CEO and the President of NSBA to the Biden Administration.”

VSBA will officially part ways with the national group on June 30, 2022. In the meantime, its executive team has stated their support for a new national effort “to meet the federal advocacy and other needs of its member school boards in a manner that values community ownership through local school board governance and engagement of students, families, and other community stakeholders.”

Effective June 30?

Talk about weaksauce. So they’ll quietly ‘cancel’ this when they think people aren’t looking anymore.

Virginia?!
Wow, a lot of Democrat asses must be red today.
Even though it’s a future deal, it’s the PR that counts.

The article quotes VSBA as stating “in ineffective behaviors that negatively effect state school board associations, member school board divisions, and the children…”, improperly using “effect” instead of the proper “affect”. Clicking thru to the VSBA document “effect” has been replaced with “impact”. Did these alleged educators confuse effect/affect? I had this drilled into me in Catholic school 50 years ago.

The School Board which are cutting those ties are simply doing it to save their own skins! Those School Boards know that they have woken a ‘sleeping giant’ and the Giant is coming for all those School Boards which they view as enemies. They don’t want to be voted out!

We’ll get right on that (in 7 months). I don’t understand why the delay.

    If I had to guess, it’s because they’ve probably already paid their dues to the NSBA for this school year, and/or already signed off on membership or service agreements for the school year….

    I covered this above.

    Because they’re planning on cancelling this quietly when people aren’t looking.
