School and parents: School board resigns after insulting parents not knowing live meeting – BBC News in Serbian

An entire classroom at a school in California was disbanded because their comments about the families of the students from the online live meeting were streamed online, without anyone knowing.

“They intended for us because they want to have someone who will take care of their children,” said one of the members of the teaching council about parents.

Another member said parents wanted to kick their children out of the house so they could take drugs during the day.

However, as the meeting progressed, so did the parents.

“Uh-oh,” commented Kim Bidi, a council member, when she was told that the meeting was streaming live on the Internet.

“Our meeting is now open to the public.”

Immediately after that, the meeting on the online platform Webex was closed to the public.

But Bigad Shaban, a reporter for NBC television, shortly afterwards posted some of the statements from the meeting on Twitter.

During the meeting, the president of the school council, Lisa Bryzendin, said that the parents are angry about the measures in the fight against the corona virus and that they want the teachers at the school to play nannies.

Richie Masada, another member of the council, joked that by saying that some parents want their children not to be at home so that they can consume drugs.

“My brother had a medical marijuana delivery company – his clientele were parents whose children were in school at the time,” he said with a smile.

Kim Bidi, another member, swore during the meeting as she joked about how she would attack one of the parents who had criticized her in previous online meetings.

And before that, she asked “are we alone”.

Someone mistakenly told her they were and she continued.

Council members criticized parents who sent comments and complaints to the school.

Before that, they discussed how to limit the duration of voice messages to three minutes each and how to more easily turn off parents when they call them.

“It’s easy to hide behind a screen and write comments, but when you’re face to face with people, it’s a completely different story,” Masadas said.

The incident led to more than 7,000 people signing a petition asking the council members to resign due to “unheard of behavior”.

Two days after the meeting, all members of the council resigned, according to a statement from Greg Hatrick, principal of Oakley Union Elementary School in the suburbs of San Francisco.

In a letter he sent to his parents, he also included statements from three former council members.

“We deeply regret the comments that could be heard at the meeting of the members of the Scientific Council earlier this week,” the school principal’s letter reads.

“Our task is to act responsibly, because we demand that from our students and all employees, and our obligation is to build a relationship of trust with the local community.”

It is pointed out that the members of the council were unsuccessful in both mentioned tasks, and the director apologized to the parents.

“Please – don’t let our failure in evaluating some people cast a shadow over the outstanding work of our teachers, administrative staff and other employees,” the principal said.

A list of all vacancies in the council has been published on the school’s website, and until the election of new ones, those functions will be temporarily performed by representatives of the local government.
