The Alliance for Free Citizens, a education-focused advocacy group, denounced a reported plan by President Joe Biden’s Department of Education to create the “National Parents and Families Engagement Council.”
According to a report from Fox News, the new organization will work to improve the relationship between parents and schools.
Specifically, parent organizations will partner with the Department of Education to find “constructive ways” to work together.
“This is a blatant attempt to cover up the many anti-parent actions of this reckless department,” said Senior Policy Director Mark Lloyd in an emailed statement. “They literally coordinated an attack on parents seeking to engage the school systems by labeling them as ‘domestic terrorists.’ We now know that the entire effort to smear and denigrate parents opposed to the radical gender ideology and the racist ‘critical race theory’ in their children’s schools was organized and directed by the Biden regime. Now, they are desperate to divert attention away from their anti-parent, anti-family policies.”
The new group follows controversy from the Department of Justice for scrutinizing concerned parents over their opposition to various policies like Critical Race Theory and coronavirus mandates.
“This is pure Soviet-style education,” Lloyd continued. “Parents are becoming engaged across America. But the government doesn’t like what those millions of parents are saying. So they set up this ridiculous shell group to divert attention and spew their propaganda. This is an insult to those who have been attacked and demeaned by the professional indoctrination crew of the Biden Department of Education.”
“Once we see a change in Washington after the mid-term elections, congressional oversight hearings need to be conducted to find out exactly who came up with this ploy and appropriate action must be taken to remove such thinking in the future.”
