It was all a ruse set up by the Biden administration and now a national school board group is going broke.
As we previously reported, the Biden administration that coordinated the letter and used the NSBA to give them cover to investigate conservatives.
“Newly released internal emails reveal that the National School Boards Association coordinated with the White House and the Department of Justice before sending President Biden the notorious letter that compared concerned parents to domestic terrorists. Emails provided to Fox News show that NSBA had coordinated with the White House for weeks beforehand,” Fox News reported.
Viola Garcia, the NSBA president was behind the scheme with the Biden White House and was rewarded a position inside the administration after the fallout.
More from Fox News:
Viola Garcia, the NSBA president whom the Department of Education later named to a federal board, sent a memo to NSBA members on Oct. 11 (but dated Oct. 12), providing a timeline of the NSBA’s interaction with the White House ahead of the letter to Biden, which the NSBA sent on Sept. 29.
“Concern over the current climate for school board members is also a top priority as disruptions at school board meetings grow and members face growing threats,” Garcia wrote at the time. “NSBA has been actively engaged with the White House, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Education, Surgeon General, and other federal agencies on pandemic related issues.”
“In the September 14, 2021 meeting of the [NSBA Organization of State Association Executive Directors] liaison group, they were informed there had been a meeting with White House staff that morning and that NSBA was preparing to send a letter to the President. Subsequently, on September 17, 2021, the interim Executive Director emailed notice to the state association executive directors that indicated a letter requesting federal assistance would be sent.”
As a result, the NSBA has now lost 40% of their revenue because groups are terminating their affiliating with the group over the scheme.
The controversy “has weakened a national voice for public education,” wrote Steve Gallon III, a Miami-Dade County school board member and chair of NSBA’s Council of Urban Boards of Education, in an email to NSBA leadership last month.
According to an Axios report the memo sent to the Justice Department by the NSBA was the last straw with affiliates that have become increasingly frustrated with the organization. Many of the states aligned with the group were frustrated with leadership and the increase in dues. Now the NSBA will have to learn how to operate after losing over $1.1 million.
Go woke, go broke.
