Last month, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to the Biden Administration accusing concerned parents of domestic terrorism and asking that the FBI use counter-terrorism resources against them. Parents of school-aged children across the country were rightfully shocked. When state-level school board association began to sever ties with NSBA, the Texas Freedom Caucus wrote to the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) requesting that they do the same. In response, TASB minimized NSBA's comments, saying they "missed the mark," but refused to ultimately cut ties with NSBA over their remarks. TASB also claimed they were not consulted about NSBA's letter before it was sent, but documents discovered via a FOIA request show otherwise.
Organizations like TASB, who see no problem with taking further control away from parents, have no business in Texas schools. Yesterday, the Texas Freedom Caucus sent an open letter to parents, teachers, and Texas school board members requesting that they advocate that their local ISDs sever ties with TASB, and we have received an overwhelming response. We invite you to sign our petition below requesting local ISDs sever ties with the Texas Association of School Boards!
