California School Board Members Caught Criticizing Parents On Hot Mic | NBC Nightly News

Ummæli

  • I know they like to pick on Florida but it’s been nice here. Schools are open, student activities like sports etc. We closed down more in the beginning but not now. Must be awful in California.

  • I think the CDC needs to answer this With schools planning reopening 1"Can unvaccinated students spead and create new variants of Covid 19 amongst each other " 2 Although children are not known to get severely ill from Covid "What is their potential to become so called Long Haulers"?

  • "Are we alone?" 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • All I had to see was “California”. Dumb city leaders, dumb teachers

    • Born and raised in California and i couldn't possibly agree more. Lets not forget Dumb cops and dumb judges while were at it especially in Northern Cali.

  • That what you get what you voted for democrats control teachers union indoctrination hate and destroying people's lives

  • Democrats defending these SCUM over politics.... Get it together 🇺🇸 ✌

  • You guys must remember that school board members are politicians and not teachers. They get voted in and voted out

  • Hope they can’t collect unemployment

  • I remember mean "teachers" picking on the other lil k4 black girls.. Pullin their hair and everything. This kind of hatred runs deeper than this.

  • The nutty beech micrencephaly program because eggplant oceanographically point towards a nondescript carbon. normal, goofy metal

  • The first quarter of 2022?! Omg! What crap are you smoking Dr. Fauci?! We should have these kids back in school now and you’re talking about not having data back until 2022? Omg how useless are you???you should’ve been getting data back a long time ago now. If you wanted to find data, you would’ve found it by now. You just don’t wanna find it and keep the country like this.

  • This is how most of our leaders think of us!

  • Las escuelas universidades solo enseñan. q sigas siendo esclavo del sistema . Vivo ejem. De las profesoras q se consideran. Baby ssiter . .. una verdadera profesional......sabe lidiar con los alumnos . No ! Usando la maldad el abuso ,bullyng ,amenazas ,y llamando a la policia para q se haga cargo lo q ella no sabe controlar . ..estamos hablando de niños de kiden-garden . ..... Para que queremos que estás estén junto a nuestros hijos ? Son enfermas ,sicópatas frustradas .... Todo eso se lo pasan a nuestros hijos ...y son campeonas echándole la culpa a los padres . Para que que pedir reabran las escuelas ? Hay Miles de libros esperando se habrán. Y despues enseñeles cómo ser dueño de su propio empresa y no ser. esclavo de un sistema corrupto y no termine lleno de frustraciones ,lamentaciones. Cómo los profesores / teachers,/educadores 😂

  • Sorry you went to college to be a “babysitter”. That’s all you think this is about? Shameful.

  • I usually give nbc an automatic thumbs down but for this one they’re getting a thumbs up. On second thought, I won’t give neither 😝

  • This is how libraries school boards function?

  • They're worried about their lives, but they don't want Kroger, publix Walmart, Meijer, grocery stores shutting down, because their employees don't want to come into work. Food is apparently essential, education not so much. Then don't blame white people for blacks falling through the cracks.. two years without education, we all know who's going to suffer. You don't get the blame all whites,as a whole. only white teachers. Make a distinction! Between whites and white teachers. Make sure you make the distinction.

  • They want their babysitter back. Imagine that, when people are paid they expect you to show up to work

  • WTH Fauci

  • Apologies? Busted. Too little too late..

  • I agree with the school board, you parents just want your babysitters back, and it might be your kids that you wanna risk the lives of your kids and the chance of a new child killing mutation occurrence, and despite the fact your kids might bring it to the bus drivers, or you yourself, the teachers should be vaccinated before your children return to school, cause I'd home school first before cluttering them into a closed in building not knowing 100% they are safe from a virus that might be inadvertently brought back home to you or their grandparents. Wake up california ! Are you really this stupid !

  • I actually feel bad for the board members. They should have been very careful but honestly, if you work with the public you KNOW you’ve talked smack with your fellow coworkers. Talking bad doesn’t necessarily mean they are terrible people. Everyone who works knows you need to decompress with your peers. I would never have recorded this if I heard it. I would have interrupted the conversation and said hey guys you’re on a public forum. No respect for anonymous recorders unless there is something violent going on. Frankly parents are lucky there’s anybody who wants to work with their precious angels. Parents are the worst

  • Lockdown did more harm!

  • White privileged!

    • This took place in Oakley, Ca. 35.8% of the population in that city is hispanic.......... 🙄

  • I think we are alone now. . .wrong. Got to love technology

  • We do want our babysitter back. Why? Because we are paying for them to look over and teach our kids while WE go to work and pay those teacher salaries through our tax dollars. If they don't want to re-open and are afraid to teach, then fine, I'll downsize my lifestyle and I'll homeschool. Or better yet, Give me back my tax money that goes towards schools so I can cover my home schooling or private school. Just don't keep forcing us all to pay for something we are not getting.

  • Dr. Fauci is a Hack! Medical Pawn! Kids have a higher risk of death from the Flu then the China Virus! Our educators think they are babysitters rather then educators! No wonder they are teaching racism in school again! #TrueAltLeft #defundthemedia #jussiesmollettsyndrome #blmisthekkk #notmypresident #bidennotmypresident #NotMyPresidentBiden #BidenIsChina

  • Will Smith...."Parents just don't understand "

  • No the comments didn't fail the community! They are still distancing themselves. They failed-the comments succeeded!

  • Ahahahaha they probably feel mad stupid

  • Recording always catches the real side of us👏👏👏👏

  • Yeah... we want our babysitters back... thats the only reason.... it has nothing to do with wanting our children to learn social etiquette, learning how to interact in public, and how to act in a social setting. We all know we are going to raise perfectly stable children,spending their lives like hermits in an isolated family...we are just salty that teachers just don't want to do their jobs, you know, be educators, what they went to school for... we totally don't think that they are enjoying their extended leave and lighter work load....

  • it's about time these board member get a dose of reality...

  • What I think is so sh¡tty is how they're all so loud and proud while they're talking crap, but when they realize that they're live, now that same one is crying. Yea, you're crying bc you got caught!! If you don't like your Job, get another one. I had some really crappy teachers when I was in school that treated the students poorly, bc they hated her job, and that is nothing new. It's not fair to students at all. I get that people get frustrated, but find a better outlet.

  • Take this into consideration for all parents out there while you guys are tripping about this... let's take it back to the 80's & 90's where gangs and bullies were the real problem & now you people are crying over these comments so what grow tf up... and in the 80's & 90's who was there when shootings and fights and bullies jumping your child was happening? Apparently not the parents for a fact so what gives you the right to judge these teachers based upon little comments... like why can't teachers have there own privacy as well like parents do with there friends & I'm pretty sure they gossip all the time about teachers as well.. so for people to be so judgemental & to just not accept there honest apology... I had Hope's of being a teacher but after seeing this.. good luck finding others that's going to put up with your kids... especially when parents leave there children unattended to become delinquents & have teachers to put up with them is beyond understanding for most people and I don't understand it

  • Follow the science follow the science screamed old Joe, but he goes ahead to follow his donors and sideline children

  • They want to keep it going to 2022 cuz of the primaries elections and use in ballot harvesting ñ mail in ballots again to cheat

  • So has virtual learning not been a thing in California? Thats what we have up here since the first lock down

  • Recall newsom, sign it and vote him out he is the reason why schools won't open he is in the pocket of the teachers union who don't want to go back to work, Wgen the recall happens vote him out and vote in someone else who will open up schools

  • Goodness, that was not good. Jesus is coming back, please love one another and help the poor. Follow God and stop all forms of evil.

  • Oh, did the parents think that the school board members actually respected them?

  • Suprise, school board members are regular people too, every school board across the country does the exact same thing, just that they haven't been caught, parents got mad because they know the school board members was right, and it hurt their feelings, like the one board member said his brothers weed delivery business, parents cant get high with kids home and not in school ...lol

  • I’m sorry, but your apologies are useless. If you weren’t caught, you wouldn’t be sorry.

    • Amen 🙏🏼 you're absolutely right! 💖😊

  • Where's the lie?

  • If you all wore masks at your protests, your children really could safely return to school.

  • My nephew's school is open and doing great.

  • I would agree about the "Babbie sitting" comment because I work with folks complaining about, "Who will watch my Kids"

    • Its part of the reason some parents have work and we already pat taxes for them to watch the kids. Education is also a reason, the teaching is a joke my kid has no work on Wednesday and the rest of the week she may have class for 2 hours or so.

  • Be brave world ! Take off the stupid masks and just say NO to the masks! Go outside and get some fresh air !! Most of all just take off the masks!!

    • Ease off the drugs randy

  • Lol... They only sorry because they got caught. Period.

  • Do they not realize that gives us the password and event number to log into the next meeting....

  • Educated??? No common sense.

  • the board members were stating facts 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • @Oligarchy Administration The people that defend the board members are ironically kids themselves. They don't have any understanding of the real world, they just know they really like Mr/Mrs. and need to defend them at all cost.

    • Parents only want kids in school for baby sitting? Are you kidding me? Elementary kids don't learn anything hardly. My kid is off Wednesdays and during the week she may have class 3 hours a day. Her speech is also definitely suffered for it since speech therapy remote learning is a jole.

  • Jesus loves and cares about you so much so repent so That we all make it to heaven, Like so more people can see this..

    • E L I T E O N T H E B E A T I definitely am not my good sir I don't care about likes or things like that I'm just here to spread the good news.Hoping to see you in Heaven

    • I hope your truly a vessel for our father lord and not using his name in vein for clout.... But i'm no one to judge. God bless brother. 🙏

  • Unprofessional yes but I also empathise with teachers who increasingly get more responsibility and less respect.

  • Get rid of the liberal teachers

    • @David Kruse the only ones hurting in this situation is kids and taxpayers.

    • You are not logical at all.

  • Parent protestors are parents who just can’t parent. Then they cry, “mental health” for their kids?!? Same parents that would use their child as leverage in a divorce.

  • TRUE COLORS!

  • That is true. Tis "easier" for elementary student to practice social distancing than it is for those children in high school!

  • I agree with the school board members. Stupid parents everywhere

  • If these people are able to resign after the comments on social media why is it so difficult for the politicians not to resign in their comments as a whole lot worse or than these women on social media all of this bad

  • Sheep.

  • They will be promoted to important jobs in government by democrats

  • Typical elitist democrats treating others like second class citizens

    • @David Kruse leave it up to a democrat voter to think they have ANY credibility to pick at such a petty non issue

    • @David Kruse You have no room to criticize. Steve Adler locking down Austin from his vacation in Mexico. Newsom with no mask at the French Laundry. Pelosi getting her hair done with no mask while supporting idiotic shutdowns tge science doesn't support. Cuomo killing 15,000 senior citizens in New York. Biden releasing violent and sexual predators who are illegal immigrants from custody and barring their deportation so they can have more victims in the United States

    • Just like Ted Cruz going on vacation during a crisis. Yup typical democrats

  • I’m sure the school board and teachers get real tired of parents wanting them to do the job that they have failed to do themselves.

  • Perfect time to give these school administrations a bleach treatment and remove all parasitic remnants. Pronto!

  • They get criticism regardless so yeah they’re also tired and somewhat they spoke the truth I mean it was supposed to be private as much everyone is tired so are they. There’s nurses I see literally will show that they don’t even want to be there and they’re suppose to care for u but we don’t say anything and they still have their jobs. Open our ears and hear what they have to say too and I’m sure parents aren’t perfect either that’s why cps exist

  • "They want their baby sitters back" So you should be paid as such right? $10.00 an hr for two hrs. Extra $5.00 if you wash the dishes, extra $5.00 if you sweep. Stfu, you should have never been a teacher in the first place.

  • Honestly what did they say that was so bad?!

    • Truth

    • Parents can’t handle the truth. We need to coddle them like we do the Kids.

  • Teachers are worse than tik tok nurses

  • These lib dems learned it all from the likes of corrupt Hillary Clinton and evil Maxine Waters - throw the bums out and put them on the no fly list!

  • Staged

  • Okay, so everyone's pi**ed off because someone who's on the front lines and therefore probably in the know remarks that the motive behind the agitation to put public schools back online is the free babysitting. But isn't that a fact? Isn't it a fact that's been obvious for years, if not for decades? What, really, are kids learning in 7 or 8 hours of school each day? One semester I was teaching a section of juniors and seniors at a large public U.S. university. By way of generating some discussion to demonstrate a point in rhetorical practice, I asked the class of about 30 upper-division students to list the most important events for the United States that happened in the 19th century. After lengthy cogitation, NOT ONE PERSON mentioned the Civil War or the Emancipation of the Slaves. These were people who had been in our country's public primary & secondary schools for THIRTEEN YEARS (k-12), plus another two years in a public colleges and universities. If anything other than babysitting is going on in the public schools, I'd sure like to know what it is.

    • @Wargasm644 wrong. Where do you get your facts?

  • Did she really need to resign? She was right after all, they do want their babysitters back. Notice they weren’t chanting immunise our teachers so they’ll be safe and my kids can go back to school.

  • On one hand, stupid parents want their babysitters back. On the other hand, stupid parents are firing their babysitters. Good job!

  • You got this Michael!!

  • It would be in California

  • This doesn't surprise me, my youngest son's teacher is very short with me (and my son) over technical difficulties that I have no control over, ridiculous.

    • You realize the teacher has 30 others kids to worry about? They aren’t IT pros

  • This is one of the first times I've ever seen libs take resoonsibility for something.

  • Karens outraged.

  • Wow vote them out asap

    • The story was that they resigned....

  • Es ist auch der Abhördienst die Russische Agenten als Treibjagden ansetzt.

  • Es ist auch Ulmer Polizisten die das hier als Publisity sehen und uns beschimpfen.

  • Es ist auch die Mircan die uns mit der Polizei bedrohen.

  • Es ist Zeki und Welli Cicek die das bei der Türkischen Behördenmafia angeregt haben mit dem Bombenbetäubung und einer der Ersten die mit Cemil Cicek eingestiegen sind.

  • No entire school board, well surely your schools will NOT OPEN SOON FOR SURE LOL😂

  • Teachers on crack.

  • So happy we homeschool!💯

  • I like how the parents always use the “mental health” angle. When I was a kid I loved not going to school, I still got to see my friends that lived on my block. Kids can still socialize. Admit it you don’t want to be around your kid that much. Everyone needs free time, hire a babysitter and go out on the weekend.

    • Right on! If bullying or being bullied are signs of mental health, the public schools must be full of stable geniuses. I was never happier than the time I got sick and had to be taken out of school for six months. Best time of my childhood!

  • Public school system for you. Imagine how Democratic politicians talk behind your back.

  • Move all too China they have now the best education for childeren.this teachers are part of new world orde they are brunch of idots whit narative mind setting

  • Whiny parents throwing temper tantrums. It's a shame the school board members resigned.

  • Who TF do they think they are there for? Pigs! Glad they resigned.

  • Well they’re not lying. You want people to be truthful, right? They’re just telling it like it is.

  • The parents in our area have been awful. And I'm a parent! They've been parading around without masks on demanding that kids go back for a full day, so full classrooms. Seems safe to me when the parents aren't even following the CDC's guidelines...

    • Parents seen their kids knowing it's pandemic with runny nose an a fever. Like keep your child at home. Bad parenting. Some needs training classes

    • @Zoozoo Right? The Donald Trump hero worship is such a trip.

    • @Ertzzz I see. So what you're telling me is that every country on the planet conspired with the Democrats in the United States against Donald Trump. I see. I guess ya got me. by the way thank you so much for the psychiatric diagnosis. The world needs more kind and learned people like you.

    • Possibly learned it in school. Right across the street from my home, we have a neighbor who teaches in a public high school here; his wife works in the school's cafeteria and they have three children. They are evangelicals. He has openly said that there is no such thing as covid-19; that it's a hoax invented by the Democrats to make Donald Trump look bad. He believes this because his pastor told him so. They refuse to wear masks and you may be certain they will not be taking any vaccines.

  • I think teachers that send homework home with the kids need to resign too.

    • @David Kruse you may be correct. If so, I'm ok with that. My teacher isn't a babysitter. Stop acting like one.

    • I think you are soft and can’t handle the real world

  • What about the ones brother sharing medical info on parents

  • Oh little snowflake are we picking on you??? Waaa, call the wambulance.

  • I like how they didn't make a big deal out of it and knew the game was up so they just quit.

    • @Tigerlilly Biden sucks and had to cheat Trump. Quit defending these SCUM 🇺🇸 ✌

    • I was thinking the same thing, they knew the game was up. The board needs to understand to be respectful of the parents.

    • or they were sick of it altogether and said F*** IT GOOD RIDDANCE 😆 🤣

  • Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others. “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted". Matthew 23 NIV You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land." And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search. These are the teachings, The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God. REPENT, and start doing what is right. If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. In the New Heaven and New Earth, only Righteousness dwells. May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

    • Jesus Christ, you keep posting that exact same gibberish in over and over, on any and every video. Stop it.

  • This is the real reason Republicans hate the media, because the media is always scrutinizing them and calling them out on their bull crap!
