“facilitate strong and effective relationships between schools and parents”
Biden takes his marching orders from the radical left on many issues. Gender is one of them.
The Daily Signal reports:
Biden Administration to Force Schools to Adopt Radical Gender Policies. Here’s What You Need to Know.
For a brief moment last week, President Joe Biden’s administration appeared to be interested in what parents think about K-12 schools. Low student achievement coming out of the pandemic. High rates of depression among youth. School officials hiding information about students’ health from their parents.
The administration seemed to be aware of these concerns when it announced the creation of a National Parents and Families Engagement Council to “facilitate strong and effective relationships between schools and parents.”
But just when we thought this administration was ready to apologize for, say, intimidating parents who voice their opinions at school board meetings, astute observers noticed that the new council actually included groups complicit with such intimidation.
Last fall, the administration coordinated with the National School Boards Association for the association to release a letter saying that federal officials should investigate parents who speak up at local school board meetings. The letter called for agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation to review the potential for any “enforceable actions” against those making public comments at these meetings.
But as Parents Defending Education’s Erika Sanzi notes, a group called the National Parents Union also supported the letter and is now a founding member of the new so-called parents council.
So, is the White House bringing parents together to listen to them or to try to convince them to support Biden’s policies?
The announcement about the parent council was just days old when the administration made yet another charge at “protecting families.” This time, though, the administration did not even try to hide the coercion.
On June 15, Biden issued an executive order on “advancing equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex individuals.” The order states that the secretaries of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Education would be releasing model state legislation in the coming months to support the “rights” of these individuals.
