Sarah Hembree, a principal at Leon County’s Cobb middle school, recently addressed the controversy over the Parental Rights in Education legislation and the role of parents in education in a Facebook post.
Hembree wrote that teachers “want to decide what they teach in their classroom based on the needs of the students in front of them.”
“I am SO TIRED of being told we don’t know what we are doing or that we are messing with parents’ rights”, said Hembree.
Hembree addressed parents directly, “Today I say – Parents, Quit pushing for stupid bills and getting in our way…schools are going to do what’s best for your students in spite of you..”
The Parental Rights in Education bill was signed into law by Governor DeSantis at the end of March.
Tallahassee Reports recently published a story about a Leon County elementary school teacher who posted her views on parental rights and gender issues.
