Skip to comments.US Education Secretary says parents are ‘misbehaving’ and he doesn’t approve

In an interview about the state of education in the U.S., Education Secretary Miguel Cardona called out parents he says are “misbehaving in public” and “acting like they know what’s right for kids.” He further noted that he doesn’t respect their actions, particularly at school board meetings.
This illustrates a truly remarkable—and dangerous—combination of hubris, hypocrisy, and ignorance. Cardona is blind to the fact that he is acting like a parent…to the parents he is accusing of “misbehaving in public.” And he simply assumes he knows what is right for them...and their children. Cardona, like all authoritarians, also assumes that those in government, whether they happen to be parents or not, somehow know better than the citizens they supposedly represent…how those citizens should live their lives. This is first-level asshattery.
Meanwhile, Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom, a parent himself, recently expressed concern about his son’s interest in Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson. In a recent interview Newsom stated:
I really worry about the misinformation, disinformation, about what’s happening with our country, but I really worry about these micro-cults that my kids are in. I say micro-cults because I don’t know if there's a better way to describe it. My son is asking me about Andrew Tate, Jordan Petersen [sic]. And then immediately he’s talking about Joe Rogan. And I’m like, here it is, the pathway.

This is where the leftist urge to censor comes from.
So parents taking a part in their children’s upbringing is now classified as misbehavior? OK, I get it.
What a commie jerk
If you can’t do better or are just to lazy.
Tax payers never get their moneys worth.
I remember mcauliffe saying something similar in the VA governor’s race
his numbers tanked and he lost the election
Like boiling a frog the democRATs, using their operatives in the NEA, have been gradually dumbing down the nation—one generation at a time.
Forget for a moment that Rogan may be red-pilling Newsom’s son.
This loser can’t control his own 11-year old son’s listening choices?
And some people think he’ll make a good President?
There you have it.It doesn't happen often but occasionally a Rat Party hack will blurt out *exactly* what their masters at Rat Party Headquarters thinks on a particular topic.
In this comment we learn that parents don't have the first clue if it's good or bad for a kid to believe that there are 75 genders or that we're all gonna die in 7.5 years if we don't ban internal combustion vehicles,beef and air conditioning but that teachers do.
I think Newsome is just attacking Rogan and Peterson. I seriously doubt an 11 year old is listening to podcasts.
The last paragraph is spot-on…
“Listening to Rogan or Peterson doesn’t put one in a micro-cult. Micro-cults are the domain of transgenders, groomers, Marxists, and Antifa.”
He’s probably right if he’s speaking about Democrat voters.
Fortunately for him, the Dept. of Education solutions will only make them more unable to make the right decisions for their kids, making them even more dependent on government departments.
they ALWAYS accuse everyone else exactly of what they themselves are doing...ALWAYS
Gavin's son may be going on TikTok, realizes that his father is a fool and calling him out on it.
Let those who agree pay taxes to cover education, those who don’t home school or private school their children. Don’t saddle me with this guys misconceptions on parenting. And next time you vote think of what your vote is getting you.
I’ll bet he doesn’t approve.
“Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State”.
The secretary of education can go bleep 🤬 himself.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
What unrestrained arrogance!
Sounds like his son has soured on dad’s ideology. Familiarity breeds contempt.
