Entire Calif. school board resigns after caught mocking parents over school reopenings

Now if the entirety of the California Department of Education also called it quits, we’d really be getting somewhere. (RELATED: Sex ed in CA will now include sexually explicit content on fisting, blood play, oral sex, more)

The board’s president, Lisa Brizendine, was the first to go after a video of a virtual board meeting in which she and other members made “truly inappropriate” comments about parents surfaced. Schools Superintendent Greg Hetrick issued an apology for the insulting comments directed at parents eager for their children to return to school.

In a statement to Fox News, Hetrick said:

The comments made were not in alignment with our vision and are definitely not what any of us stand for as leaders. I know that we lost trust with the community. I will not make excuses for what happened or why it happened.

Brizendine also issued an apology for her behavior, explaining that she was raising a child with special needs while also holding down two jobs. But a disinterested observer might point out that her circumstances should make her more sympathetic to the plight of parents with children at her school. Brizendine in the video can be heard accusing parents of “want[ing] their babysitters back.” Another board member can be heard saying, “If you’re gonna call me out, I’m gonna f*ck you up.”
