MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. – Michigan parents pushed back after the state’s Democratic party criticized parents who want to play a role in what public education teaches their children.

“It’s wrong to take away the power from the parents,” Diane told Fox News. “It’s their children, not the government’s children, it’s our children.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The Michigan Democratic Party posted on its official Facebook page: “Not sure where this ‘parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids’ is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire.”


The post continued, “The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught. It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.”

Michagan GOP tweeted, “You heard it here first, folks! @MichiganDems are ready to indoctrinate your children with what ‘society needs them to know.’ Does anyone want to tell them #SchoolChoice was a major issue that led to Republican @GlennYoungkin’s victory in VA? 🤔 Vote out the Democrats!”

Republican candidate for Governor of Michigan, Chief James Craig wrote, “Gov. Whitmer’s Democratic Party irresponsibly just said, ‘the client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.’ I vehemently disagree. Read my full response here.”

Ron, of Michigan, said, “The government has a real interest in making certain that people are well-informed and educated about their civic responsibilities.”

He added, “But they absolutely have to have people involved. Otherwise, it’s just not going to work. They need reinforcement of the parents, and they need the consent of the parents.”

  1. Maybe if the Dems would ever humble themselves and read the Holy Bible every once in a while, they’d see where some of these ideas originate.

  2. How utterly ridiculous and transparent school officials sound. They decide what to teach OUR children. Maybe its time to revamp our communist public school system.

  3. Local schools are funded with tax dollars paid by the parents and other citizens. In fact, a huge portion of property taxes go to fund the local schools. You shouldn’t have to pay taxes as well as private school tuition to have a say in what your child learns. Education is local, decided by the taxpayers. The Dept of Education should be abolished. Education should not be federalized. Common Core, the brainchild of the Gates’s, was a failure. Time to return education to the local communities.

    • Indiana’s School Choice voucher programs lets you send your kid to any accredited school, even parochial, and the state pays 50 to 90% of the amount they otherwise would send to the local district, towards the tuition of your kid. If the tuition at your chosen school is low enough it may be covered completely by the program. My own son is having over $600 of $800 monthly tuition covered by School Choice. The teachers’ unions hate it. I think it’s great. 🙂

  4. Another example of how Demoncrats think, they want children taught what “society needs for them to know”. That don’t get it for me, it’s a Parents RIGHT, to decide what their children need to learn or not learn. After 14-16 hours of labor giving birth, and paying for every need and comfort for my children, be damned if a DemonCrat is going to decide what they will study. Public education has run its course, and needs an overhaul !
