Members of a California school board were caught on video making fun of parents desperate to get their kids back in school after being forced to learn remotely due to the pandemic. According to the New York Post, the call of the Oakley School Board’s virtual meeting was “accidentally to the public when they were making fun of parent requests.”
Angry at parents’ requests to put children back in school, president Lisa Brizendine said, “they forget there are real people on the other side of those letters that they’re writing…it’s really unfortunate they want to pick on us because they want their babysitters back.” The other board members chimed in; one said of the parents’ requests, “if you’re gonna call me out, I’m gonna f— you up.”
All four members of the Oakley Elementary School District board resigned on Friday after the video circulated online after it was posted by the account “Reopen California schools,” prompting an online petition for the board members to resign.
Schools Superintendent Greg Hetrick spoke to Fox News stating, “the comments made were not in alignment with our vision and are definitely not what any of us stand for as leaders. I know that we lost trust with the community. I will not make excuses for what happened or why it happened.”
California is just one of hundreds of thousands of schools across the U.S. whose parents are trying to get school to return to in-person learning with teachers in classrooms. Many students have faced spending an entire school year learning remotely. “Meanwhile, the White House is facing scrutiny for shifting language around President Biden’s 100-day push for students to return to classrooms amid the coronavirus pandemic” reports Fox News.
