Francesco Abbruzzino, The Uncensored Report, LLC
A national federation of school boards has issued a mea culpa after it was revealed the org had pressed the White House to label parents who oppose Covid restrictions as “domestic terrorists,” apologizing after a wave of backlash.
The US National School Board Association (NSBA) issued a lengthy apology on Friday, acknowledging to members that a controversial letter to President Joe Biden “regarding threats and acts of violence against school board members” included inflammatory language while apologizing for the poorly worded missive.
“On behalf of the NSBA, we regret and apologize for the letter. To be clear, the safety of school board members, other public school officials and educators, and students is our top priority, and there remains important work to be done on this issue,” the org said, addressing local school boards which make up the broader organization.
However, there was no justification for some of the language included in the letter. We should have had a better process in place to allow for consultation and communication of this significance. We apologize also for the strain and stress the situation has caused you and your organizations.
