Senate Republicans called Tuesday on inspectors general to investigate possible collusion between the Biden administration and the National Education Association on squelching pushback over critical race theory in schools.
The senators cited an Oct. 8 letter from NEA president Becky Pringle urging tech platforms to block “disinformation” on critical race theory, in which she cited Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Oct. 4 school-board directive responding to the National School Boards Association’s letter raising the specter of domestic terrorism.
“There is reason to suspect the NEA worked with Biden Administration officials to write this letter after email evidence revealed that the Secretary of the U.S. Department Education colluded with the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to produce a letter sent to President Biden a few days earlier, on September 29, 2021,” the 11 senators said in their letter.
The lawmakers, led by Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, sent the letter to the Education Department Inspector General Sandra Bruce and Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.
The senators cited an internal email unearthed earlier this month by Parents Defending Education from an NSBA board member saying that Education Secretary Miguel Cardona solicited the association’s letter, which his office has denied.
