Debbie Squires, the infamous Michigan Elementary/Middle School Principals Association bureaucrat who told a Michigan legislative committee that parents may not know what is best for their children is now saying they should “stay informed” and “voice their concerns to legislators,” according to Hometownlife.com.

Squires was addressing a group focused on school aid and urged attendees to talk to legislators to stop school choice legislation, such as the parent trigger or expanded for-profit options.

Earlier this year, Squires came under fire for telling the House Education Committee that while parents may want what is best for their children, they may not always know what actually is best. Because, you know, parents don’t know their kids. But bureaucrats do!

“Educators go through education for a reason. They are the people who know best about how to serve children. That’s not necessarily true of an individual resident. I’m not saying they don’t want the best for their children, but they may not know what actually is best from an education standpoint,” she said.

“Wow, parents don’t know what’s best for their child,” a stunned Tom McMillin, committee chairman, said.

“I said they may want what’s best for their child, but they may not know. And they may not have the capabilities…” Squires responded.

But now, she wants those dummies to contact their legislators to say her schools need more money.
