U.S. Department of Education Secretary Miguel Cardona appeared to dismiss some parents who protest at school boards during an Associated Press interview released Friday.
“We can disagree, we can have healthy conversation around what’s best for kids. I respect differences of opinion, I don’t have too much respect for people that are misbehaving in public and then acting as if they know what’s right for kids,” Cardona said during the interview.
Attorney General Merrick Garland called on the FBI to “use its authority” against parents who “threaten” school officials in board meetings in October 2021. The National School Board Association asked the Biden administration in 2021 to use anti-terrorism laws to restrict parents who voice concerns at school board meetings.

Cardona allegedly solicited the National School Boards Association (NSBA) comparing parents at school board meetings to domestic terrorists, according to emails discovered in January 2022. The letters requested federal law enforcement to “deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation.” (Read more from “Biden Official Dismisses Some Parents for ‘Acting Like They Know What’s Right for Kids'” HERE)
