Leaders of education and parents rights groups across the country expressed their opinions following remarks made by first lady Jill Biden, who claimed that her husband, President Biden, will always be known as “the education president.”

Speaking at the 2023 NEA teacher’s union’s annual meeting on Tuesday, Jill Biden stated, “I knew that Joe would always be the education president, because he knows that … the success of our nation starts with you, the educators who shape our students’ lives.”

Education leaders from various parts of the country criticized the first lady’s comment, particularly regarding the president’s track record on education. Sheri Few, president and founder of United States Parents Involved in Education, stated, “In light of who her audience was, she was probably 100% accurate when it comes to Biden supporting the liberal NEA agenda. Biden is THE most anti-parent education president in the history of this country! And he is THE education president that carries the water for the NEA.”

He is THE education president, as his Department of Justice aimed to label parents as domestic terrorists for objecting to pornography and critical Marxist theories in schools.

Few further stated, “He is THE education president, with his Press Secretary insisting that trans kids are ‘our kids’ and ‘belong to all of us.’ And he is THE education president who said, ‘There is no such thing as someone else’s child… Our nation’s children are all our children.’”

Jill Biden’s comment comes after the “Nation’s Report Card” revealed that reading and math scores for 13-year-olds reached their lowest point in decades, which critics attributed to school closures encouraged by Biden.
