Teachers Union Busted Framing Conservative Mom
A Rhode Island mother, Nicole Solas, is fighting back against a teachers‘ union she claims harassed her and made her the topic of a “secret meeting“ after she made a records request regarding the district‘s curriculum. Solas shared her story with Fox News‘ Rachel Campos Duffy Sunday on “Fox & Friends Weekend,” exposing the teachers‘ union for the way it treated her for asking questions about public education.
Solas explained that she was painted as an “enemy of the state“ simply for requesting public records. To make matters worse, she was the subject of a secret meeting attended by 250 teachers. Slides condemning her were leaked to her by a teacher, and she alleges that the person who created the slides was a middle school math teacher.
“Who does this to a person?” Solas asked. She went on to explain that since going public with her allegations, she has received letters from other parents who faced the same threat of a lawsuit.
“This is happening across the country,” she warned. “They have secret meetings about me, they have threats of lawsuits against other parents, and, in my case, they actually did sue me… all because I asked questions about public education.”
Now, congressional Republicans are pushing for a “Parental Bill of Rights“ that Solas believes should be supported by everyone. She believes that the bill will protect parents‘ rights to see the curriculum, be heard, know if there is violence at school, and protect their children‘s privacy.
“I had no idea that I would be treated like an adversary,” Solas said. “I thought I had all of these rights going into public school. I thought I could ask to see the curriculum, but just asking to see the curriculum caused my school district and teachers‘ union to retaliate against me, and they really tried to ruin my life.”
The Parental Bill of Rights is an important step towards protecting parents‘ rights.
