School Boards Association Coordinated With White House to Target Parents

Newly obtained internal emails reveal that the National School Boards Association (NSBA) coordinated extensively with the Biden administration before releasing the infamous letter that equated concerned parents with domestic terrorists.
Obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Protect the Public’s Trust, and reviewed by the Washington Examiner, the emails detail the degree to which the NSBA consulted with the White House and the Department of Education (DOE) before asking the Biden administration to use the Patriot Act to investigate parents protesting at school board meetings.
In the newly released emails, then-NSBA head Chip Slaven communicated to White House official Mary Wall on Sept. 21, 2021, that the organization was planning to send the letter – more than a week before it did so.
Protect the Public’s Trust is seeking the Justice Department’s communications with the NSBA and has filed a lawsuit to force the agency to comply with its FOIA request.
Michael Chamberlain, Protect the Public’s Trust executive director, told the Washington Examiner that the emails are a snapshot of the federal government’s efforts to silence parents.
