The entire California school board resigns after a video shows them mocking parents who want their kids back to school
The entire North California school board, including the board’s president, has been resigned after video showing all its members mocking the parents who wanted to send their children back to school.
The board of the Oakley Union Elementary School District, namely — Lisa Brizendine, Kim Beede, Erica Ippolito, and Richie Masadas resigned last week.
On Friday, the district’s superintendent, Greg Hetrick, announced the members’ resignation that follows the petition sprung shortly after the clip surfaced online.
All the members were caught on camera when during their online meeting they were trashing the parents who stand for reopening of the schools.
“They don’t know what goes on behind the scenes. It’s really unfortunate they want to pick on us because they want their babysitters back,” said president of the school board, Lisa Brizendine.
Unluckily for the stupid educators, the parents could eventually watch the video of the meeting.
One of the school board members said that the parents what to send their kids back to school so they could smoke marijuana while the kids are in the classrooms. Hetrick called the quartet’s comments “truly inappropriate.”
"The comments made were not in alignment with our vision and are definitely not what any of us stand for as leaders," Hetrick told Fox News. "I know that we lost trust with the community. I will not make excuses for what happened or why it happened."
Later, now-former president of the school board, Lisa Brizendine issued an apology.
"I am raising a 10-year-old with special needs and having him home during this pandemic, while also holding down two jobs to support my family has been a huge stress," Brizendine said. "I suffer with many of the same things that parents are going through from mental health issues to regression. My remark was callous and uncalled for and for that I am truly sorry."
The resigned members will be replaced by members of the Contra Costa County education board, according to Hetrick.
