Continuing the wave of withdrawals, Mississippi and Illinois are the latest state school board groups to cancel their membership with the National School Board Association over its letter to the Biden administration requesting federal investigation of parents who protest at school-board meetings.

Most of the alienated state chapters have expressed the same grievances as their reasoning for departure. They have slammed the NSBA’s decision to send the letter, prompting Attorney General Merrick Garland to deploy the FBI and federal law enforcement to investigate and potentially prosecute parents who “threaten” school administrators, as an encroachment on their local affairs.

Mississipi’s group, one of the many who were not consulted by the NSBA before the letter was issued to President Biden, was no exception. In a decision voted on Monday, the MSBA Board of Directors severed its relationship with the headquarters, adding that it does not see “the value of continued membership,” according to Mississippi Today.

“The September 29 letter from NSBA to President Biden, with the inflammatory language and the request for federal agencies to intervene in our communities, was just one in a series of lapses in governance,” MSBA President Leroy Matthews and Executive Director Denotris Jackson wrote in an email to school board presidents and superintendents.
