Four school board members from the Oakley Elementary School District, 40-miles east of Oakland, California have resigned after they started ripping on parents during a video conference that they thought was offline but that was actually live and being recorded.
School board president Lisa Brizendine, who was heard on the video mocking parents who “want their babysitters back,” has resigned along with the other three members who joined in on the mocking.
Things heat up at the 5:15 mark of the YouTube video. Members can be heard chatting about random items until one board member starts complaining about a parent.
“Are we alone?” board member Kim Beede asks before going off on a parent after being assured she’s offline. “B—-, if you’re going to call me out, I’m going to f— you up.”
“Sorry, that’s just me!” Beede added as her fellow board members laughed.
“My brother had a delivery service for medical marijuana and his clientele were parents with their kids at school,” board member Richie Masadas says, seeming to indicate parents want their kids back in school so they can smoke up again.
How are parents responding to this? Go take a look at the comments on the latest Facebook post from the Oakley Union Elementary School District’s Facebook page. The trustees might want to lay low and have groceries delivered for a few months until this all dies down.

Meanwhile, let’s not forget the stance of CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, who said that schools can open “even in areas of the highest community spread” even without teachers being vaccinated.
“We are advocating with the strict mitigation measures … including universal and mandatory masking as well as six-foot of distancing, that at least our K-5 children should be able to get back to school at least in a hybrid mode,” Walensky told “Fox News Sunday” on February 14.
In case you didn’t hear, Gavin Newsom’s four kids went back to in-person learning back in October at the private school they attend. “They’re phasing back into school and we are phasing out of our very challenging distance learning that we’ve been doing, so many parents are doing up and down the state,” the governor said back in the fall.
It’s now nearing the end of February, California schools remain closed, and parents are being mocked. Great job, California educators and trustees.
