National school board group considered asking Biden to deploy ‘military police’ against parents

By Laurel Duggan

The National School Boards Association (NSBA) considered urging the Biden administration to deploy the military to school board meetings to monitor threats against board members in September 2021, according to an independent review conducted by attorneys.

The NSBA sent a letter to the Biden administration Sept. 29, 2021 calling for the federal government to use anti-terrorism laws, including the Patriot Act, to treat violence and threats of violence against school board members as “the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.” However, in an earlier draft the NSBA called for the deployment of the national guard and the military police to monitor school board meetings before removing the language, according to the independent review of its decision to request federal authorities to monitor school board activities.

“[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 earlier draft of the letter said.

Days after the final NSBA letter was sent, Attorney General Merrick Garland called on the FBI to use its authority against those who intimidate, harass or threaten school board members.

The NSBA walked back its letter in October and apologized after widespread blowback over a public perception that the organization was attempting to target concerned parents who were protesting at school board meetings.

The NSBA did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  1. Does anyone need more to know these people are communists? Its time to decertify every teacher union and banish them forever.

      • Jay,
        Actually it can or must be along these lines
        “Under certain circumstances, you can vote out or “decertify” your union, or replace it with a different union. At least 30% of your coworkers must sign cards or a petition asking the NLRB to conduct an election. Unless a majority of the votes cast in the election are in favor of union representation, the union will be decertified”.
        I also found info on how it is done on a state level, not a Google search. We also have to get legislation to make VT a right to work state. That will stop influence by said unions.
        Not sure how the actual mechanics work but if they were “voted in” they can be decertified to be removed and then removed..

        • So, at least 30% of the teachers in a given school district have to agree to decertify their union representation. I place this eventuality in the ‘fat chance’ category. After all, Vermont teachers aren’t obligated, legally, to join the NEA. But they are required to pay ‘agency fees’, whether or not they join the union.

          Are you aware that Vermont is already an Employment At-Will State? The sticky wicket is that public school teachers sign a contract that specifies their employment obligations. A teacher’s only recourse is to work elsewhere. And I can assure you, as a former school board director, the ‘actual mechanics’ of teacher contracts are extensive and, for the most part, intractable.

          The game is rigged. The only way out is to allow parents and their children access to Vermont’s Town Tuitioning system, the nation’s oldest publicly funded school choice system, dating back to the early 1800s that affords some Vermont students full access to educational choice, others limited access, and still others no access.

          “Vermont’s Town Tuitioning system works well for the favored few who happen to live in a location where it is available,” said Brian Kelsey, senior attorney at the Liberty Justice Center. “Those who are ineligible are at a distinct, and unconstitutional, disadvantage.”

          • NO, 30 % of all union members in the stated union in a particular state. Also “agency fees” :” An agency fee is a fee that employees working for an employer that has signed a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with a labor organization must pay in place of dues when they elect to not be a member of the organization.
            ( Basically a nonrepresented union member) You misdirect people with that comment. Employment at will and Right to work are two very different things. The way they violate laws and rights is with contracts you must sign for employment, where they give up there right to sue ,not pay union dues, to be a whistleblower and on and on including moving to arbitration so no one is the wiser, and lets not forget the NDA they make people sign , not to protect “trade secrets ” but to stifle and crush any dissent.

      • Hi Jay,

        Like the guys over at Granitegrok say all the time: Who works for who?
        I think we all need to remember the power we do actually have, if only we had the guts to use it and rip off the bandaid.

        Also think about this: The purposeful destruction of our tax funded school system is an act of war.
        Our nations entire future is literally within our youth..
        We are brainwashing them, aborting them, mutilating them with an LGBTQ agenda, pumping them full of experimental drugs, creating mental illness in them, the nation is then awash in drugs that they’ll wind up using to self medicate. They are grooming them to be abused by pedophiles.. I mean how much more should I list here?

        Yes, they are after our kids.
        I’d like to know how far gone we need to be before everyone wakes up and does something.

        I’m thinking the way to “decertify” something is to defund it and it’s long past time to be done.

        • See my comment above, Laura. School Choice is our only recourse. And in Vermont, some families have it, others don’t. That’s unconstitutional. And the only way achieve ‘equal access’, speaking of ripping off the scab, is for parents to sue their school districts.

          In fact, in Vermont, parents are already suing the state over the unequal access to education Residency restrictions on its historic School Choice Town Tuitioning system that violate the state constitution.

        • Sorry, as much as I like what you said, VT is not a right to work state w/ the rules and policies and protections that go with it. In VT it is employment at will. You can leave and or be fired at anytime. In VT you have nothing but your wits to stay employed because any reason or none can be used to remove your job from you including discrimination ( try and prove it) and being a whistleblower. If the state was a Right to Work they could not charge fee/dues to be a teacher/nurse or any other union to be employed. Look it up, I did

          • Sorry my comment was for Laura,
            I for got sexual harassment and hostile work environment. Both In VT are almost impossible to prove in a state that lets “problems ” like that just go away with a firing.
