A woman who is either a teacher or impersonating one for a video triggered outrage online in which she mocked parents who approached their local elected officials about problems in their children’s education, taunting them, “Not my boss. … Get bent.”
The woman stated, “So you see how you think you’ve done something here because parents or community members have voiced their concern to their elected official, which is how that process works, not bringing it to a teacher, right, they’re taking to the elected official. And now that legislators are trying to implement these things … but still in fact a parent. Not my boss. I don’t actually answer to them, so, get bent.”
Criticism came in a fury:

Dealing with parents as a teacher can be tricky, but if you think posting a video online telling concerned parents to "get bent" is appropriate, you lack the professional judgment to be in the classroom. https://t.co/XgH8EqvNsQ

I wonder how this chick will react when a parent finds her and gives her a piece of their mind? She seems kind of unstable when she thinks she's in charge, she'll melt when she realizes she isn't. That's a TikTok video I'd watch. https://t.co/7lruAfghcJ

Do we get to tell cops how to do their jobs too, or does this only apply to underpaid teachers? https://t.co/R6SRfbDKqg

The move to change public schools continues unabated; on Wednesday, WisPolitics.com reported:
In the last week, over 500 Wisconsin families have sent more than 1,500 emails to their lawmakers in support of new bills that would expand parental school choice program access and parental rights in education. These bills include LRB-4713-1 and LRB-5987-1, AB 963, AB 967, AB 968 and AB 970, which are part of the larger Empowering Parents K-12 Education Reform Package currently in the State Assembly.
LRB-4713-1 and LRB-5987/- open school choice to all Wisconsin families by removing state enrollment caps, family income limits, and grade entry points. In addition, for families in traditional K-12 public schools, this legislation creates a state “micro-ESA” program that would allow parents and students to seek additional educational options by funding an additional class or educational opportunity per semester.
American Federation for Children Wisconsin State Director Justin Moralez stated, “More and more parents are looking for alternative educational options that best meet the needs of their family. Together, these bills would expand eligibility and access to the choice program for more working class families across the state.”
In Nebraska, a bill is being considered that would allow the commissioner of education to withhold state aid from school districts that don’t make learning materials publicly available. “Under LB1158, a policy would include how the district will provide parents and guardians access to digital and learning materials and training materials for teachers, administrators and staff as well as procedures for the review and approval of such materials and activities, among other information,” Unicameral Update reported.
The Wall Street Journal reported on February 5, “Lawmakers in at least a dozen states are backing bills meant to increase transparency around school curricula, the next iteration of movements under way to bar teachers from promoting concepts perceived as divisive. The bills, introduced by Republican legislators, would in some states allow taxpayers to sit in on classes or make staff professional development sessions open to members of the public.”
“Some of the bills also seek to define how schools can teach subjects related to race, gender and discrimination—steps that more than a dozen states already have taken through new laws or rules,” WSJ added. “Often the bills aim to curtail teaching about critical race theory, which argues the legacy of white supremacy remains embedded in laws and institutions that were key to shaping U.S. society.”
