The Biden administration has tapped the president of the National School Boards Association — who penned a letter to President Biden comparing parents speaking out about their children’s education to “domestic terrorism” — for a position on the federal ​board setting policy for students’ performance.

Viola Garcia was named by Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to ​sit on the National Assessment Governing Board, which was established in 1988 and oversees and sets policy for the National Assessment of Education Progress.

That board, also known as “the Nation’s Report Card,” examines student performance on a number of subjects and reports on their achievements.​

“The 26-member Governing Board is responsible for deciding which subjects NAEP assesses, determining the assessments’ content, setting achievement levels that describe student performance, and pursuing new ways to make NAEP results useful and meaningful to the public,” the press release dated Oct. 13 from the Department of Education announcing Garcia’s appointment said.

Garcia and ​Chip Slaven, the CEO of the NSBA, signed the letter sent to the president on Sept. 29 urging him to take action against parents protesting local school boards because “education leaders are under an immediate threat.”
