(Washington, DC) - Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is firing back at U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland about parent involvement in schools.
Garland has directed the Justice Department to investigate a disturbing trend in threats against school boards over mask and COVID vaccine mandates, coupled with debates about whether or not critical race theory should be taught in schools.
In a letter sent to Garland over the weekend, the Kentucky Republican said parents have a right to tell schools what to teach.
McConnell compared parents criticizing school boards to protests against the government and said it is protected by the First Amendment and the Constitution.
