The National Education Association Sues Mother For Asking What The School Is Teaching Her Child
Like many parents, Nichol Solas, about the move toward politically biased curriculum in schools, emailed the principal of her school in the South Kingstown School District asking for the kindergarten curriculum.
Specifically, she wanted to know if it would include teaching children those political biases.
This was a step too far for the school; she immediately faced stonewalling from the principal, then the school district sent her a bill for $72,000 to gather the material to send to her.
After this, the “association of bullies,” the National Education Association, uses its $300 million budget to sue a lone Rhode Island mom who had the nerve to ask what her daughter would be taught in kindergarten.
The attack on Nicole Solas is being addressed by the Goldwater Institute, which is working on her behalf.
“She immediately faced stonewalling from the school and even a threat of legal action for asking too many questions. Ultimately, Nicole received a bill for $74,000 to fulfill a public record request filed by the Goldwater Institute on her behalf in July,” the institute said.
“If that were not enough, Nicole is now facing an unprecedented lawsuit by the NEA, a veritable goliath of a public-sector union, representing over 2.3 million people nationwide. She is under attack with the costs and expenses associated with defending herself in a lawsuit for simply acting as a conscientious parent,” the institute continued.
“This is not the first time that the NEA has shown that it’s more concerned with politics and indoctrination than actually helping kids learn and succeed. At the 2019 Representative Assembly of the NEA, the union’s delegates voted down a proposed resolution that called on the organization to ‘rededicate itself to the pursuit of increased student learning in every public school in America by putting a renewed emphasis on quality education and ‘make student learning the priority of the Association.'”
“The NEA is so determined to push its political agenda that they are willing to expose themselves in a court of law for who they really are: an association of bullies eager to challenge a stay-at-home mom who simply wanted to know what her daughter would be taught,” Solas explained.
“This lawsuit won’t deter me from asking questions, and I encourage all parents to do the same so that they are empowered to make informed decisions regarding their children’s education.”
Here lie the crux of the problem, the union, and teachers behind it feel that it is their right to push whatever agenda they want on our children. We as parents have no right to question what they are teaching and control what is being taught to our children.
Make no mistake; this is not a lone attack against a single parent. This is a case where the union is taking on just one parent to keep this out of the public eye, but if it succeeds, it will use this ruling to force all of us to shut up and do as we are told.
This is not just the union; we are seeing an unprecedented move by the left to tell parents our duty is not to raise our children, instill morals that are only the right of the state, controlled by the progressive left. They alone have the right to dictate what our children should believe in, morals taught; we are to shut up and stand by while they turn our children into indoctrinated drones.
This is a fight for the future of our nation, the souls of our children. Since this nation was founded, we, the parents, dictated morals, raised our children in the way we, not the state, saw fit, now we see a move by the left to take this right away from us, trying to strip parental rights, this needs to be fought, the loss is not our loss, it is losing our children to an all-controlling liberal left.
