PARENTS' RIGHTS IN EDUCATION MONTH

SURPRISE! SURPRISE!

When we announced Parents' Rights In Education Month a few weeks ago, we were not aware an Oregon County Board of Commissioners was taking it into consideration!

PRIE extends a hearty "Thank you!" to the Yamhill County Board Of Commissioners for recognizing November, Parents’ Rights In Education Month!

We extend our appreciation to Commissioner Mary Starrett, VICE CHAIR for bringing the PROCLAMATION to the Agenda, and for  Casey Culla, Chair and Rick Olson for passing it!

NOT for SCHOOL BOARDS ONLY!
The Yamhill County Proclamation was a pleasant surprise as PRIE members approached many local school boards over the last two years. 

  • In 2019, after the first reading at a work session, one district heartily endorsed it, only to face attack from the local teachers union. See story below.
  • Another Oregon district followed suit, only to change the verbiage significantly altering the meaning replacing "board" with "teachers."
  • Twice, parents in Austin, Texas made attempts by presenting the Proclamation at public meetings.
  • Recently, Ft. Worth ISD parents gathered 200 signatures on a petition calling for PRIE MONTH adoption. The Board administrator promised a board vote, which was recanted on the day of the meeting, claiming need for more community input.  No problem. We have all year to work on this!

OREGON KANGAROO COURT
Teachers' Union Applied Pressure to Rescind and Replace

We wonder about the Texas board's experience in relation to a similar experience with our OREGON group. In October, 2019 Molalla, Oregon School Board passed a Resolution declaring November, Parents' Partnership In Education Month, affirming "the constitutional right of parents to direct the education and upbringing of their children."

At the following November 21 Work Session, after receiving pressure from the teachers union,  the Molalla School Board voted to Rescind the Resolution and replace it with one acceptable to the Oregon Education Association. The new RESOLUTION affirms parents' partnership with teachers, not their elected school board, and acknowledges anti-discrimination laws, not parents' rights.

The OEA school representative pressured MOLALLA School Board to usurp PARENTS' RIGHTS!

  • The replacement Resolution was not published for the public to review prior to the vote.  This statement was found at the bottom of the document written prior to the meeting:  "ADOPTED this 21st day of November, 2019." In other words, the board proclaimed victory before the vote.
  • The board voted to rescind the previous Resolution and replace it in a single vote, without ANY opportunity for public comment.

Anyone with minimal understanding of Roberts Rules knows neither of these actions are lawful proper procedure.

ALL City, County, and Sate Boards are welcome to recognize Parents' Rights in Education, Month!
