CURE Leaders Call For Secretary of Education's Resignation
January 24, 2022
CURE Founder and President Star Parker, CURE Board Member Marc Little, and well as CURE’s Director of Governmental Relations Marty Dannenfelser have signed onto a letter calling for the resignation of Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona.
“On January 11th, evidence emerged that Secretary Cardona had conspired with the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to malign parents across the country who have been demanding accountability from their local school board members. According to emails obtained via FOIA request, the NSBA’s letter to the Biden administration last September which compared the actions of concerned parents to “domestic terrorism” was sent at the request of Cardona.
Secretary Cardona’s involvement in the conception of this letter is especially alarming considering that it was subsequently used by the Department of Justice to legitimize a new initiative cracking down on vaguely defined “threats” to school boards — and threatening the First Amendment rights of parents to speak freely and petition their government. If the NSBA’s letter was indeed crafted at Cardona’s request, this would mean that the DOJ’s action was based on a “crisis” that the Biden administration itself created.”
