We’re not really big on a TikTok ban, but then we see something like this from Chris Vazquez, the Washington Post’s “associate TikTok producer,” and we have second thoughts. Vazquez proves that you can squeeze as much bias into a short TikTok clip as you can into an entire WaPo article, if not more. At a time when test scores are suffering, students are facing a mental health crisis, and there’s a teacher shortage, money that could be spent on academics is instead being diverted to fulfilling records requests from parents.
In today’s second @washingtonpost TikTok: Schools are being flooded with records requests.
They come from parents and others scrutinizing what schools are teaching about race, gender and sexual orientation.
And they’ve forced districts to reallocate funding and staff resources. pic.twitter.com/Y5D4aeKEJ4

Oh no! “Districts are rushing to comply with complex queries as parents seek ‘transparency’ about what is taught.”
Oh no not *checks notes* parents getting involved in knowing what their kids are learning

Excellent! Glad to see parents getting involved with their kids.

the record failing of students and lack of reading skills have been on this trend well before parents started to ask about curriculums lmfao…. absolute garbage framing

Parents should be involved, they aren’t the schools children, they get a lot of taxes to serve the community, and if the teachers weren’t trying to show kids books about genitalia, sex toys, and the proper way to use a butt plug parents wouldn’t have to ask for all the documents

Welp. That’s “the parents” tax money and the Union will protect ANY TEACHER from doing anything not define in their contract. So the teachers are most definitely not handling this while denying attending to students needs. Take that to the bank.
