Do you feel like you’re not being heard? That you’re not being properly represented? That the head of the teacher’s union is sitting at the head of your dinner table? Look what’s happening in Michigan. That is no way to live. The Daily Mail reports:
Michigan Democrats were heavily criticized over the weekend for telling parents that they are not ‘clients’ of public schools and that public education teaches kids what society ‘needs them to know.’
A Facebook post on Saturday shared by the state’s Democrats on their official page blasted the idea that parents should be involved in what public school teach their children. The post was taken down on Monday morning following heavy disapproval.
‘Not sure where this “parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids” is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire,’ the post read.
‘The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught,’ the Michigan Democratic Party’s post added. ‘It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.’
The Michigan Democratic Party later deleted the post on Martin Luther King Day and retracted its original statement. It is unclear who wrote the post – but Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been blasted for what many see as meddling by her party members.
What were they thinking? Did they see what happened in Virginia when former governor Terry McAuliffe said something similar, and then lost the race for governor spectacularly to Glenn Youngkin?
