Biden FBI and DOJ to Crack Down on Parents Critical of School Boards

President Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will crack down on parents challenging school boards and teachers over issues such as Critical Race Theory and mask mandates.

The National School Boards Association sent Biden a letter asking for the federal government to get involved and investigate.

Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a memo and the DOJ issued a press release:

“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” wrote Attorney General Garland. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.”

The DOJ stated they “will also create specialized training and guidance for local school boards and school administrators.”

Teachers union leader Randi Weingarten thanked Garland.

Critics commented on social media.

Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley called out the Biden administration.

It’s concerning to have the federal government via the FBI involved in school board meetings.

Threats of any sort are unacceptable and should be handled on the local level by law enforcement.

Clearly, the Biden administration has gone too far by inserting the federal government into local school board issues.

Parents have every right to know what their children are taught in school and to question and challenge educators, as they see fit.
