Biden administration Education Secretary Miguel Cardona triggered a whirlwind of backlash Friday when he tweeted that teachers — and thus not parents — know what’s best for children.
“Teachers know what is best for their kids because they are with them every day. We must trust teachers,” he wrote in the tweet.

The tweet echoed the Democrat Party talking point that parents who’re concerned about what their children are being exposed to at school are bad.
As far as Democrats are concerned, parents are obliged to accept whatever filth that their children’s teachers think is appropriate in the classroom. This has included veritable pornography, among other highly inappropriate content.
Yet polling data has consistently shown that a majority of American voters support the Republican Party’s push for parental rights.
One CRC Research poll published in March on behalf of Parents Defending Education found that “71% of registered voters support legislation requiring schools to tell parents if their child wants to change their gender identity at school, while 75% of registered voters support legislation requiring schools to acquire parental consent before helping a student transition.”

But none of this data seems to matter to Democrats, particularly the ones in the Biden administration.
No matter what arguments are made and what data is shown, Democrats remain convinced — as demonstrated by Cardona’s tweet — that teachers know best, and that parents need to butt out and mind their business.
Parents, however, continue to strongly, strongly, strongly disagree.
They are MY children!! I bore, nursed and cared for them through colic. I mopped their vomit, soothed their nightmares and checked under the bed for monsters. I took them to docs, sports practice, and canned healthy food to keep them well. Teachers are fine, but my kids are MINE

Sure. In a classroom with 25 kids of varying behaviors and academic levels, and where different teachers may teach different subjects, your children will get exactly 5 minutes of individual attention every day. But teachers know your kids better than you do.

Oh, where to start? Parents are with *their* kids every day of their lives from birth to adulthood. As much as the Left would like to drive a wedge between parents and their children it isn’t going to happen. Parents > teachers every day of the week and on the weekends too.

You should delete this tweet. Actually, you should delete your account and right after that you should resign.
Anyone who thinks the government knows what’s best for kids over their parents has no business working in government.

I don’t trust anyone who tries to tell children they can subvert biological reality.
I don’t trust people who make kids sit still for hours at a time.
I don’t trust people who keep lowering standards & STILL can’t help kids to meet the benchmarks.
THEY’RE NOT YOUR CHILDREN

Cardona’s remarkable tweet was posted only days after a black North Carolina pastor went viral for exposing a school board to the same pornographic garbage that they were exposing the district’s schoolchildren to.
Speaking before a school board in Asheville, Pastor John K. Amanchukwu Sr. specifically introduced the board members to a book called “It’s Perfectly Normal.”
“I’ll read some of this for you. It says, after a bit, a person’s vagina becomes moist and slippery and the clitoris becomes hard. After a bit, the penis becomes erect stiff and larger. Sometimes a bit of clear fluid that may contain sperm comes out of the tip of the penis and makes it wet,” he began to loud protestations from the board members.
“I’m sorry — was it something I said!?” Amanchukwu then sarcastically asked, laying the smackdown on the “smug” board.
“If you don’t want to hear it in a school board meeting, why should children be able to check it out of the school system? We have perverts that are perverting our kids, and you all sit back smug in your chairs, but you don’t want me to read it. Why? Does it bother you — yes or no?” he said.
“You can’t answer that question. You wanna know why? Because politically speaking, you can’t say that it’s wrong, and you don’t want me to read the filth because it exposes the truth. How dare you tell me to stop reading it. If you don’t want to hear it, why should the children have to see it,” he added just in time.
“Pastor, your time is, the time is up,” one of the board members then said.
“That makes two of us,” Amanchukwu concluded.
