Dear Ms. Pringle:
Your role as president of the National Education Association is pivotal, and that is why I am urging you to remove Mollie Paige Mumau from the board of directors of the NEA; she is employed in the General McLane School District in Edinboro, Pennsylvania, which is part of Erie County.
In her December 7 Facebook post, Mumau did more than criticize those who are seeking a religious exemption from receiving the Covid-19 vaccination. She called for them to be shot. Here is an excerpt of her remarks (she was apparently responding to someone who chose not to get vaccinated, citing religious objections).
“Screw this guy and screw them all who are all about hiding behind religious exemptions because they don’t want anybody to tell them what to do….He and his ilk deserve whatever comes their way, including losing jobs, getting sick, and perhaps dying from this virus….I don’t know why the GOP doesn’t just take those guns they profess to love so much and just start shooting all of their constituents who think this way (my emphasis).”
As someone who spent 20 years teaching, 16 as a professor, and as the president of the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization, I am calling on you to terminate Mumau’s membership on the board of directors of the NEA. Given all the gun violence that our nation has endured lately—including school shootings—it is beyond belief that an educator would make such a statement.
There is no legitimate place in public life for anyone who advocates the mass slaughter of innocent Americans, and it is doubly offensive that it should emanate from a teacher. Indeed, Mumau should be prosecuted for what she has done, and that is why I am contacting Erie County District Attorney Jack Daneri.

I’m sure that many good teachers do a good job. However, the failure of the U.S. public schools is a national disgrace. Some teachers call themselves heroic and above reproach. Yet, large percentages of American public school students are not as educated as they were decades ago in the basics. Even years ago, some teachers had poor attitudes where students progress was not on their list of things to do. While adversarial nations turn out engineers and doctors in record numbers, the U.S. is turning out :””woke” graduates with little basic reading and writing skills.
Just 12 years ago, I probably was one of the last high school graduates to be properly taught here in public schools in MA. I had excellent teachers from K-12, lucky me. Despite it’s liberal reputation, MA historically was the best state for education. No more.
it’s a sheetstorm… public education is a disgrace here.. top down needs overhaul…best thing to happen to the students is more get to be homeschooled because of crazy covid and crazy lying Fauci, imho… they run the public schools like a business, it’s not the best interest of the students… it is purposely to keep them duped down for clowns like who is now the resident of the White House… times a changing… no. more parents sit back and listening to the self appointed ones… get out of town… parents first… you work for us… your job is to teach and clearly that has not been taking place imho… nowadays you get an occasional great teacher… they stand out because so many are uninterested, burnt out, deprived from the top down…too much of everything else going on besides teaching…
