Standing With Parents in Eastern Washington
As a mom of three kids in school, virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic opened my eyes to some of the things our kids are being taught in the classroom, as I’m sure it did for many of you. I’m concerned parents are being shut out of important conversations about our kids’ futures, and I believe that all parents should play an active role in their children’s education. I support the efforts of so many in our community who are making their voices heard.
Unfortunately, some are labeling parents who are engaging in their kids’ education as “domestic terrorists.” While the National School Boards Association issued a long overdue apology for these highly inappropriate comments, it’s not nearly enough.
Concerned parents should never be considered “domestic terrorists” for playing an active role in their children’s education. That’s why I’m helping lead the Stand With Parents Resolution to protect parents exercising their constitutional right to engage in conversations about issues that impact their children.
The bottom line is that our classrooms should be for teaching the fundamentals needed to set our kids up for success, not political agendas and radical ideals. I’m proud to stand with parents in Eastern Washington and across the country to make sure that’s exactly what happens.
