The left hates parents’ groups so naturally they label these moms a ‘hate’ group

The Southern Poverty Law Center recently released updates to its list of hate and anti-government groups to include a number of newly added education-focused groups. 

This new list is the second in which the SPLC merged “hate” and “anti-government” groups into one category, equating beliefs that the federal government is overbearing with being racist – a charge that highlights the overtly political and extreme nature of the group and severely discredits the lists it creates.

Many of the parent groups cited in the new SPLC list formed or became heavily involved in education during the COVID years, when parents had a new and sometimes jarring look into their children’s classrooms as they were moved from the local schoolhouse to kitchen tables via Zoom.

As a result, these parent groups focus on transparency in schools and use that transparency as a tool to ensure public education is non-political and age appropriate, equipping parents with the information they need to support their children and voice concerns through the appropriate school channels.

A recent State Policy Network poll shows Democrats are more likely than Republicans to believe being able to access student curriculum is highly important. Half of Democrats, twice as many as Republicans, believe public schools are deviating from approved curriculum “often.” This runs counter to the media narrative that only right-wing extremists have concerns about what is happening inside schools. 

If the Biden administration had realized this was a bipartisan concern, maybe it would have thought twice about siccing the FBI on the tail of parents engaging with their local school boards.

Groups that oppose curriculum transparency – because they want their attempts to push a political agenda to stay hidden – have turned to the extreme tactic of labeling opponents as hateful to try to quell the rising tide demanding accountability from public schools. 

Parents and voters must not take the bait. Instead, diverse groups within communities must demand transparency from local schools and use that information, and their voices, to ensure schools meet the goal of providing an appropriate, inclusive and quality education for all.
