California School Board Resigns After Video Surfaces Of Them Ripping Parents

Videos by OutKick

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.

  1. Man that was NOTHING! I taught public school for a few years in 2002-2005 and that was tame compared to what you hear in the teacher’s lounge or after work getting Margaritas on Friday. I heard some really degrading comments about current and former students all the time, and everyone laughs…me included. i was no angel, I am simply pulling the curtain back. Teachers are not-superhuman, and they DO believe many parents view them as baby sitters….because many parents do! This is nothing new, its just these folks got caught. They are probably nice normal people that you never would’ve known or suspected talked or thought that way.

  2. Always the small town school boards causing trouble, Joe.
    Thank God they don’t have these problems in the big city…like uh…like Chicago…and New York…and uh, Los Angeles…and Philly…and San Fran…yeah, Frisco gotta get ‘ol Abe Lincoln’s name offa that school building so the kids can learn!!!
