ST. PAUL - Minnesota Republicans on Friday, Nov. 5, called on the state school boards association to drop ties with its national affiliate after the group requested a federal probe into threats made against local school boards around masking measures and curriculum.

A group of seven state legislators in a letter called on the Minnesota School Board Association to terminate its membership in the national group and refuse to take part in federal investigations looking into threats against school boards, teachers or administrators.

The push comes after U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland this week defended his request to have the FBI meet with local law enforcement to further investigate "threats, intimidation and harassment" toward school board members, educators, administrators and others.
