Entire School Board Resigns After Trash-Talking Parents In Hot Mic Moment
The four members of the Oakley Union Elementary School District Board in California didn’t realize their meeting was being broadcast to the public.

OAKLEY, Calif. (AP) — All members of a San Francisco Bay Area school board resigned days after they were heard making disparaging comments about parents at a virtual board meeting they didn’t realize was being broadcast to the public.

The four members of Oakley Union Elementary School District Board had stepped down by Friday amid growing outrage that began with the board’s Wednesday meeting. Before the meeting officially began and unaware the public could see and hear them, they used profanity and made jokes about parents just wanting a babysitter or to smoke pot in their home.

The incident garnered national attention and widespread condemnation.

The district’s superintendent, Greg Hetrick, announced the resignation in a letter Friday and said that Contra Costa County education board members will replace them in an interim capacity, the Mercury News reported.

1. They should not be having nonpublic sessions anyway!

They are there to represent the public and should only be out of public session under certain circumstances. Trash talking is not one of them.

5. "B---, ..If you call me out, I'm going to f--you up."

Trustees were awaiting the start of the meeting when they began discussing parents’ letters and social media posts about reopening schools.

Beede defended herself against a parent who chided her on social media for going to a party during the coronavirus pandemic after declaring it wasn’t safe to return to school.

“I wasn’t doing anything bad — I honestly don’t care about that part — but are we alone?” she asked the other trustees. “B—-, ..If you call me out, I’m going to f—you up.”

6. People still don't understand the technology they're using

It's really remarkable that so many people make such obvious mistakes with our communications technologies. (Hi, Jeffrey Toobin!)

But stupid is as stupid does.
