California School Board Officials Caught On Video Mocking Parents Who Want Them To Work: ‘They Want Their Babysitters Back’

California school board members are under fire after “truly inappropriate comments” were made during a videotaped board meeting.

Officials with the Oakley Union Elementary School Board were caught mocking and disparaging parents in vile ways for the crime of wanting teachers to return to the classroom.

“Are we alone?” Board member Kim Beede said, clearly unaware that their meeting was not private. “B****, if you’re gonna call me out, I’m gonna f*** you up. Sorry, that’s just me.”

School Board President Lisa Brizendine disparaged parents as simply needing teachers to serve as their babysitters during the day.

“It’s really unfortunate that they want to pick on us because they want their babysitters back,” Brizendine told her fellow board members.

Another insinuated parents needed daytime sitters so they could smoke pot during the day.

“I totally hear that because my brother had a delivery service for medical marijuana. The clientele were parents with their kids in school,” she said.

School Board Members Mocking Parents Should Resign

The school board members caught mocking parents on video are being pressured to resign as a result of their comments being made public.

An online petition has garnered several thousand signatures.

“I am asking that the board members resign immediately due to their egregious behavior,” the petition reads. “They should no longer represent the parents, teachers, and children in this school district.”

They note that a recall effort would cost the school district money which should be going to education efforts.

The Superintendent of the school district, Greg Hetrick, did his best to run damage control for the board members.

“The comments made were not in alignment with our vision and are definitely not what any of us stand for as leaders. I know that we lost trust with the community,” he explained. “I will not make excuses for what happened or why it happened.”

Hetrick added that “our students deserve better from us” and vowed to restore trust, but made no mention of resignations or dismissing any of the board members.

Don’t Want to Work? Get a New Job

Perhaps these California school board members caught mocking parents or the teachers who don’t seem to want to return to the classroom should heed the advice of former Congressman Trey Gowdy.

Gowdy railed against the Chicago Teachers Union for fighting a return to schools earlier this month saying, “If you don’t want to teach, go do something else.”

“They can give you all the reasons not to go back into classroom, but they can’t seem to find a single reason to go back into classroom,” Gowdy observed of the teachers’ unions.

“Teaching is hard work even without a pandemic … I get it,” Gowdy said, “But if you don’t want to teach, go do something else.”

  • Teachers ARE NOT baby sitters. If this is what they think, they have no business in being
    a teacher. They are there to teach and if they can't do this, they can find another job!!

  • Babysitting is all the public school teachers are capable or doing. They have no grasp of science, math, history, English language...they are for the most part functionality illiterate. They should be required to read and thoroughly be tested on the content and meaning of at least the Bill of Rights before even babysitting our children. The teachers` unions have succeeded in failing to teach. Do NOT elect any Board members supported by their unions.

  • Most officials and teachers in gub-ment schools are commies and hippies and don't deserve a job, especially a job in which they brainwash our youth. They were bad 20-30 years ago, but clearly they're even worse now.

  • OH BOO HOO, what an bunch of politically correct fools people are. They were in what was thought to be a private conversation. They were making light and fooling around. Like the good book says those without sin cast the first stone. To a point they are right. I am sure many parent's wish their kids were out of the house and back in schools BECAUSE Kids can be a pain in the BUTT. Just look in a mirror and say have I ever made fun of someone. Banter is a form of stress release. SO get over yourselves there are more important things to fret over. This is one reason Comedian's cant get work because everything they say can be taken as offensive. GROW UP PEOPLE IT WAS FUNNY.

  • Born to be stupid.....just when you think faith and hope have failed you the DIMs give you a diamond in the rough.....a idiot who blabbed a smartass remark on a open mic....reasons to get your dander up.....PI you and I both know you cannot insult the left..

  • Typical left wing attitude. Cannot take constructive criticism; cannot address concerns; just insult the critic. And these are trusted with children's formative years ? No wonder America is such a mess. One of the few times I am grateful my children were educated in Scotland.

  • PayAttentionMaybe it's time people started paying attention to who they elect for school boards. In most districts two left wing loons run against each other and only the teachers show up to vote - usually deciding by who promises them the most money.

  • Since they consider the teachers "babysitters", and " babysitters" in the private sector are only paid if they actually "babysit", then it is time to stop the salaries of all teachers not " babysitting".

  • They can always code or is it make solar panels can never remember what the Democrats say about the job market apart from here's another 10,20,30 or 40,000 more unemployed now remember don't blame the Democrats this is trump's fault because he made biden scrap the pipeline, and you obviously remember biden saying if you vote me in as president I'll end covid19 and cure cancer look how well that ended up !!! but never forget YOU MUST BLAME TRUMP, TRUMP IS TO BLAME!!!!

  • Well I suppose all those teachers who don't want to go back will have to take Biden's job offer to the xl pipeline workers and always learn to code
