Behind the Poll

On September 29, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) sent a letter to President Biden expressing their concerns over parent protests. The letter claimed that the federal government must “deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation.”

The NSBA claims that parents who have expressed their opposition at school board meetings have “incited chaos.” More specifically, the NSBA wants parents who protest Critical Race Theory and/or Covid-19 restrictions to be treated as domestic terrorists.

“As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crime.”
