OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
So I saw this clip circulating the Twitter interwebs (I don’t think that’s a word but it’s funny to say when referencing the Internet – makes me feel like I’m 90) of Miguel Cardona, President Joe Biden’s Education Secretary, in which Cardona suggests that parents should not be the “primary stakeholder” in their kids’ education.
When asked whether or not parents are the “primary stakeholder” in their children’s education, Cardona rejected the suggestion. Instead, he said parents are “important stakeholders.”
Cardona: “I believe parents are important stake-holders but I also believe that educators have a role in determining educational programming.”
A lot of Twitter keyboard warriors are stating that, given professors and teachers are professionals at what they do, that parents should just trust them OR do home-schooling.
However, that begs the rebuttal of – do you always trust a mechanic when you take your car in to get checked? I mean, they’re professionals, right? Given that logic, you should just sit down and take the arbitrary evaluations and the correlating costs.
Oh, but I’m sure the left doesn’t view the two similarly.
Once schools can stop teaching children about masturbation and critical race theory, then I’ll have my people call your people.
