Parents vs. School Boards
School board meetings across the country have increasingly become cauldrons for parental unrest and political division. What used to be orderly, even boring meetings with few in attendance are now bubbling into disputes about mask mandates, transgender policies, and Critical Race Theory – and gaining national attention. The National School Board Association called parents a “threat,” and Attorney General Merrick Garland directed the FBI to get involved. While some are calling for the suppression of parental input, legislators and parents are saying this is about protecting parental rights in schools. CBN News National Affairs Correspondent Heather Sells is on today’s episode to discuss parental rights in schools versus the duties of school boards, and why these two seem to be at odds at this point in history.
