Biden To Teachers: Children Are ‘Yours When They’re In The Classroom’

On Wednesday, Democrat President Joe Biden repeatedly told teachers gathered outside the White House that school children are “like yours when they’re in the classroom.”

Biden made the comments at a Teacher of the Year event during which he urged teachers to help students “gain confidence enough to know what they can do.”

“They’re not someone else’s children, they’re our children,” Biden said. “And they are the kite strings that literally lift our national ambitions aloft. … Think about it. If you got to do one thing to make sure the nation succeeded in the next two generations, what would you do? I would say, literally, have the best-educated public in the world.”

Biden added that “we have an obligation to help them … reach their potential.”

“You have heard me say it many times about our children, but it is true, they’re all our children. And the reason you are the teachers of the year is because you recognize that,” he said. “They’re not somebody else’s children. They’re like yours when they’re in the classroom.”

Biden’s remarks come amid a push from Republicans for parents to be informed on and have more control over what their children are being taught in classrooms – which has been met with strong resistance from Democrats.

Last month, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the state’s Parental Rights in Education into law, a bill which banned classroom teachings on “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” for young children in kindergarten through third grade.

“Parents’ rights have been increasingly under assault around the nation, but in Florida we stand up for the rights of parents and the fundamental role they play in the education of their children,” DeSantis said at the time. “Parents have every right to be informed about services offered to their child at school, and should be protected from schools using classroom instruction to sexualize their kids as young as 5 years old.”
