National School Boards Association Owes $20 Million to the IRS

The National School Boards Association, the group that compared parent activism to “domestic terrorism,” owes nearly $20 million to the IRS, according to tax forms.

Most of the debt comes from “accrued pension liability,” as disclosed by the National School Boards Asociation’s 2017 and 2018 Form 990 filings. The 2019 form, which is the most recently filed, does not include an itemized list under the federal income taxes subheading for “other liabilities,” per Just the News.

As previously reported by Human Events News, the National School Boards Association sent a letter to the Biden administration claiming that school boards face “domestic terrorism and hate crimes” from parent activists, or what they referred to as critics of mask mandates and promoters of “propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory.”

In response, Garland said the FBI and U.S. attorneys would have meetings with federal, state and local leaders to form “strategies for addressing threats.”

The Justice Department said in a press release that it would create “specialized training” for school boards and administrators to identify threats, report it to law enforcement and “capture and preserve evidence” to aid in prosecutions.

The financial problems add to the criticism the Association is facing from at least 21 state members. Its board of directors issued a memo to members Friday saying they “regret and apologize for the letter” and that there was “no justification for some of the language” used.

“[The] voices of parents…should and must continue to be heard,” the memo said. It promised to launch a “formal review” and announce “specific improvements soon” on consultation and coordination.
