Stay-at-home Rhode Island (mom) Nicole Solas, 38, has become the face of a rebellion against America’s influential National School Boards Association (NSBA), which plays a key role in serving approximately 51 million American children. Solas had never heard of the group until five months ago, when she asked if her daughter’s state kindergarten taught Critical Race Theory.
Unable to get a straight answer, she began an investigation and opened a hornet’s nest, as she explained to RT in early October. Now, she is being sued by America’s largest teachers’ union and was a key factor in the NSBA issuing a public letter to Joe Biden claiming that parents like her campaigning against CRT “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism,” and also asking for assistance from the “U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Secret Service” to reduce the risk of violence.
Solas vented her fury to media organisations about the shame of being portrayed as a domestic terrorist – but although the NSBA issued an apology, it was not to Solas and fellow parents. She explained, “The NSBA apologised to its board members for not getting their vote to send out this letter that branded parents domestic terrorists.”
