A school district in Tennessee is facing criticism after parents were asked to refrain from listening in during their children’s online classroom instruction.

Rutherford County Schools in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, had asked parents to sign a form agreeing to give teachers privacy with students, according to Fox News.

The district soon came under fire, Fox reported, and retracted its stance asking parents not to listen to what their children were being told during virtual classes.

Parents are now no longer being asked to stay away from participating in the educational experience of their children.

“We are aware of the concern that has been raised about this distance-learning letter that was sent to parents,” school district communications director James Evans told Fox News.

“We have issued new guidance to principles that parents can assist their children during virtual group lessons with permission of the instructor but should refrain from sharing or recordings any information about other students in the classroom,” Evans added.

Roughly 20,000 of the district’s 48,000 students are learning from home, according to WZTV.

The controversial letter asking parents not to listen in on those home-learning lessons is the second time in recent days where educators have asked for privacy while speaking with kids who are at home.

On Aug. 8, a Pennsylvania teacher named Matthew R. Kay complained online with other teachers that distance learning would prevent him from speaking to kids about subjects such as diversity, gender and sexuality.

“So, this fall, virtual class discussions will have many potential spectators — parents, siblings, etc. — in the same room. We’ll never be quite sure who is overhearing the discourse. What does this do for our equity/inclusion work?” Kay wrote on Twitter. The Federalist Papers read more
