School boards as a rule like to stay under the radar. Aside from the desire to avoid controversy they know that parental ire becomes political ire very quickly.
Big education is even bigger money and that means corruption. Textbook company bribes, teacher unions in cahoots with the Democratic Party. Kick backs on everything from school building contracts, testing schemes, computer purchases, to school lunch contracts. There are also countless well funded outside pressure groups spreading money around. It all goes on outside of the bright light of transparency.
The National School Board Association (NSBA) dove head first into the culture war by going nuclear on parents opposing the overtly racist and communist Critical Race Theory (CRT) by asking Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DoJ) to use the Patriot Act to investigate parents opposing CRT at school board meetings, declaring them to be domestic terrorists. Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland was all too happy to comply, sending a letter to the FBI directing them to investigate the parents.

Democrats in the Biden Administration hoped using the FBI would have a chilling effect on parental involvement with education, what they got was a breathtaking degree of pushback.
Public interest law firms leaped at the chance to take this on as civil rights litigation often means the loser pays the attorney fees for both sides. Big education has deep pockets.
Mark Levin, Judicial Watch, America First Legal, ACLJ, Liberty Council and countless others started licking their teeth.
It seems that leakers at the DoJ have prompted a letter to the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz with allegations of teacher union/Democratic Party/NSBA collusion. The Daily Signal has an outstanding piece of journalism explaining all of this and we encourage all to read it:

There are honest school boards that are disgusted that NSBA would declare parents “domestic terrorists” and there are others who do not want to chance that their corruption be exposed in the legal morass.
Think about it, a school board calls in the FBI, parents sue with the help of a public interest law firm such as Judicial Watch, everything gets subpoenaed and FOIA‘d. Books are opened, money is followed, crimes are discovered.
It doesn’t take a genius to see the writing on the wall:
