An internal review has revealed that the National School Boards Association (NSBA) planned to ask President Biden to deploy the Army National Guard and military police to watch over parents protesting policies such as mandatory mask wearing and teaching critical race theory.
“The stunning request was included in a draft letter to the president from September of last year, but was ultimately removed from the final version by the NSBA’s then-CEO Chip Slaven, according to a report from Milwaukee-based law firm Michael Best & Friedrich LLP” reports the New York Post.
The letter that was ultimately sent, on Sept. 29, was signed by Slaven and then-president Viola Garcia and argued that verbal confrontations and other incidents at local school board meetings across the US constituted “acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials.”
“But the original letter — drafted Sept. 17 by Deborah Rigsby, the NSBA official in charge of lobbying and federal legislation — contained an even more egregious request” adds The Post.
“[W]e ask that the Army National Guard and its Military Police be deployed to certain school districts and related events where students and school personnel have been subjected to acts and threats of violence,” the letter read. The line was too extreme even for Slaven, who expressed his concern in an edited draft dated Sept. 22.
“[T]he classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes,” read the final letter, which went on to ask the administration to “examine appropriate enforceable actions” under a raft of legislation — including the post-9/11 Patriot Act.
Ultimately, the letter “precipitated an Oct. 4 order by Attorney General Merrick Garland that the FBI investigate complaints of threats against school officials from parents, caused an immediate backlash from parents and Republicans in Congress.”
The early draft of the National School Board Association’s letter requested the National Guard and military be deployed to monitor concerned parents in school board meetings.
This must never happen in America.

Hannity exclusive: Sara Carter talks to NYC parents about migrant influx affecting schools
Sara Carter went directly to the streets of New York City to talk to parents about how the migrant crisis is affecting the education of their children in the schools of the big apple. Exclusive to ‘Hannity’ Carter spoke with several parents.
The schools are already struggling, said one concerned father. The migrant crisis and thousands of families with children attempting to get education, combined with the city’s resources being cut across the board in combination with redistributing resources to fight the consequences that come with the migrant influx.
Children are already being faced with catching up from the learning losses during covid, the father continued. Nationally, students are grades behind where they should be due to covid-19 protocols such as quarantining for days and work from home curriculum. Now, adding the thousands of migrant children will create even more of a strain said the father.
We need to stop creating a fantasy world that everyone can come here, stated another concerned parent.
