Parents Against Critical Theory

FOIA’s

Public school parents have a vital weapon in their arsenal: the Freedom of Information Act or similar local public records laws. 

Exercise your right under your state’s Freedom of Information Act and public records laws to get documents related to your issue of concern. Public school records available include emails from the email addresses of public school officials (including principals, school board members, teachers, staff and anyone with a school email address). Also available are contracts, curriculum, trainings, videos, text messages and other records that provide valuable information about events, classes and other issues that may cause you concern. 

It usually takes anywhere from a few days to several weeks to get results, but the results are usually very rewarding! And if you file your own and think you’ve found something great, let us know.
