At least 11 state-level school boards have distanced themselves from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) after it pushed for federal law enforcement to crack down on “threats of violence and acts of intimidation” at local school board meetings.

State-level school boards in Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia have issued statements blasting the NSBA over its September 29 letter to the Biden administration. School boards in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Texas have said that the NSBA did not reach out to them before writing to President Joe Biden…

While recognizing “alarming incidents and comments which extend beyond civil civic discourse” at school board meetings, the Florida School Boards Association (FSBA) said the NSBA letter called for “federal overreach” and should be retracted.

“Several elements of your letter run counter to the tenets embraced by the FSBA, and this communication has caused serious concerns, conflict, and consternation for many of our members within the FSBA,” the FSBA wrote in an October 11 response. “Not only has it unnecessarily distracted from the important work being carried out by our members, it has strained important local and state collaborative relationships our members have worked hard to build and maintain for years.”…

The Virginia School Boards Association wrote, “While the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) is a member of NSBA, it was not consulted about this letter, did not provide information to NSBA, and was not informed that the letter was being sent.” The VSBA went on to say policing of local school board meetings should be handled by local officials….

As The Daily Wire previously reported, Attorney General Merrick Garland ordered the FBI last week to begin investigating a recent spike in “harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence” against school administrators. He published the new directive in an October 4 memo…

Garland said that FBI and DOJ officials should work with local and state officials to develop plans to “discourage” threats and potentially prosecute violators…

Are you thankful for this development on behalf of parents? Share in the comments below, and add a prayer that parent’s voices will be heard.

Thank YOU LORD that more and more parents and beginning to speak up against this administration for forcing it’s most un-Godly and mostly illegal practices

Lord I thank you for these states that are honoring parents who take the time to care about what their children are learning in schools, Lord. I pray that their example take off for other areas that want to do the same but are feeling timid. And Lord I lift up the rest of the States including my state of California who recently tried to recall a governor. That governor’s number one contributor to stop the recall move was the teachers association in this state. Our public schools are in crisis Lord. Children are coming home to parents that care in defiance. They’re turning to same-sex relationships and other things in rebellion because the enemy has come against their minds. Jesus you said let the little children come to you and let no one stop them. That’s exactly what the enemy is doing in schools. You said that it would be better for someone to have a millstone tied around their neck then to stop one of these little ones from coming to you. This whole agenda is against you Lord, they are mocking you. We need your move for our children, Lord. We say Your kingdom come and Your will be done Lord in the area of public education for youth. Satan, the blood of Jesus is against you- you cannot have our children. We love you Lord and we trust you Lord, and we give this to You now and we will pray without ceasing as long as there’s breath in our lungs on behalf of our children. In Jesus mighty name amen

Lord, Grant us peace in our school board meetings, that parents, educators and board members be given respect and a voice to address the issues of concern. Parents should have influence about the content of education coming to their children and when the government begins to enforce programs that enhance prejudice and discord against a segment of children we have overstepped the boundaries between a child and the parent. So much of the curriculum and attitudes coming from educators brings hatred toward our country and when students come out into the working force they are crippled with bias and hatred, not seeing any good in the country they live in. I can think of no other country who has tried to right its sin against mankind and with His GRACE we will continue to press on and give praise to God for having put us in the country we live in. God Bless America and may He raise up a generation who will know their God and give honor to those who have raised them. Parents are God idea and may God bless them as they oversee the work of their hands.

    I wanted to clarify, that I’am a parent of five children and a grandparent of thirteen. They range from 3years old to 25. The older ones have all gone through the university system and realize that education without personnel accountability is just education and not always tempered with love, compassion and kindness. These are the qualities a parent and grandparent impart to the next generation and brought into a world culture. Parental responsibility is vital, please do not give up your job as the parent because a government without God is demanding it.

Everything about schooling their children needs to be on behalf of parents. Parents are raising the future. These kids need to be able to succeed on the world stage. They need a relevant education that equips them to step into the future well prepared. But the liberal agenda has made education about lgbtq+, and all the other politically correct garbage. I pity these kids when they are 20 and discover how Ill prepared they are for the real world.

Lord we ask that local school boards and parents across our nation would stand up together, in unity, to reject federal interference in the local school matters. Give courage, wisdom, knowledge, guidance and ongoing energy to stay the course to fight back this blatant overreach from the pit of hell. We ask this in your holy name-amen.

Praise you Lord, Father God for waking parents up in Virginia. I ask that you keep them strong and resolute, give them Your words to speak and I ask that You send Your angels to surround them and protect the children from what is ongoing in the schools now. I also pray that you encourage the parents to take their children out of the public school arena and enter them in Faith based schools which do not have such evil subjects which warp young minds. Help them find the support and help that is available to home-school wherever possible. In Yeshua’s name I pray.

Heavenly Father,
We pray that you come to the assistance of families who need strength, guidance, patience, perseverance, clarity, and peaceful hearts to battle the evil that we clearly see being infiltrated in our school systems. Send your Holy Spirit to convert the minds and hearts of all school board members, administrators, educators, and staff who are entrusted every day to protect our children from all evils, and to teach our children under your tenets and your Truth.
We also pray for your very name to return to the classroom. “In God, we Trust.”

Thank You, Lord for granting courage to those standing up for the rights of parents and the safety of our children. Please draw many more school Board members, teachers, administrators and parents to seek Your wisdom and stand firm in their communities! We ask In Jesus Name!

Dear Lord, why is there so much to contend with? Every time we turn around some one from this administration is interfering with and instigating over-reaching actions against the normal population who wants to protest against something in our society that is wrong, like going to school board meetings and voicing opposition to what is being taught to our children.
It’s this administration, Lord ,who are acting according to the enemy. It’s this administration that wants power, power over all the people and children. They want oppression! They are fighting against you Lord, out and out going against you!
You see this Lord, we ask that you have the ultimate say in this matter, and in every matter that they propose! We ask for your righteousness to prevail!
We ask that you work in their hearts and minds to convict them of their total wrongdoing! And to cause them to repent from their evil ways, and to do good instead! For the sake of our children and grandchildren!
In Jesus’ name 🙏🙏🙏
