Michigan State professor calls parental rights issue a ‘made up crisis’
A Michigan State professor on Wednesday called the issue of parental rights a “made-up crisis” during a panel discussion called “Crisis In The Classroom” on a local ABC News affiliate.
After a debate on school choice, the discussion host Armstrong Williams shifted the conversation, asking Texas State Board of Education member Staci Childs if parents should be made aware of what their child is being taught in the classroom.
Childs responded that parents should know what their children are learning.
“However, I don’t think that that gives rise to allowing us to manipulate what has happened in our country and manipulate the truth and cherry-pick what we’re going to teach students. That’s two different things,” Childs said.
Armstrong proceeded to ask for Dr. Joshua Cowen, the professor of education policy at Michigan State University, to respond. Cowen said that as a parent of five children in public schools, he is going to meet with his children’s teachers and help out with their extracurricular activities. Earlier in the segment, Cowen criticized school vouchers, claiming that “Betsy DeVos-style voucher schemes don’t work.”
“Parent-teacher conferences are all over the place. You can walk in. The idea is that parents aren’t involved in public schools and have no say. I mean–I just don’t know where it’s coming from. I think it’s kind of a made-up crisis, to be honest with you,” Cowen said.
