The National School Boards Association (NSBA) apologizes for the letter to the White House asking for federal help with disapproving parents.
"On behalf of NSBA, we regret and apologize for the letter," they wrote in a memorandum to members on Friday, Oct. 22.
"… There was no justification for some of the language included in the letter. We should have had a better process in place to allow for consultation on a communication of this significance," it continued.
NSBA also included acknowledgment of respect to parents' opinions in its apology.
