Alabama Association of School Boards Dumps National Organization


The Alabama Association of School Boards is the latest state organization to pull out of the National School Boards Association after leaders send a letter to the Biden administration begging it to file federal lawsuit against concerned parents by the content and quality of their children. education.

“I would say [the withdrawal is] due to long-standing concerns,” AASB chief executive Sally Smith told 1819 News. “The letter to the president and the events that followed were really the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.”

According to Smith, the AASB was already struggling to represent the needs of Alabama school board members, so when leaders of the national organization went behind the backs of state leaders to demand that the administration Biden uses ‘domestic terrorism’ laws to target parents who want to hold school boards accountable, NACC dropped NSBA.

“The AASB has chosen to let its membership in the NSBA expire due to long-standing concerns about the governance of the organization and its commitment to its mission and ability to represent the needs of Alabama school board members. . The letter to the president and subsequent developments were symptoms of this dysfunction,” Smith said.

The CNAC, like many other state agencies, has previously testified that it was unaware of the letter until it was made public.

“Although the AASB is a member of the National School Boards Association, members were not consulted on the need for federal intervention and we are not aware of any state making this request,” previously stated. the AASB in a press release. “In fact, the NACC believes that the NSBA’s letter requesting federal intervention is inconsistent with the NSBA’s support for local control.

Just last week, the Florida School Boards Association announced its departure from the NSBA following the unapproved surprise letter to the Biden administration.

“The council voted to condemn the letter that [NSBA] sent to the White House asking the FBI to get involved in local school board businesses,” Escambia County School Board member Kevin Adams told a local ABC News affiliate.

On Monday, at least 27 state school board associations distanced themselves from the NSBA over the letter.
