|Last week, Attorney General Garland sent a memo to the head of the FBI, directing him to work with local law enforcement “to address threats against school administrators, board members, teachers and staff.”|
Critics say that Garland made the move in response to parents vocally opposing mask mandates and race-related teaching implemented by local school boards.
The move by Garland to have the FBI investigate parents at school board meetings quickly put his son-in-law’s nationwide education business — Panorama Education — in the spotlight.
Our auditors at OpenTheBooks investigated Panorama Education – co-founded and owned by Xan Tanner, Attorney General Garland’s son-in-law.
Here’s what we found:
23,000 U.S. schools use Panorama surveys.$76 million in capital raises since 2017 – including Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, as an investor.Critics say that Panorama surveys are the gateway to a new critical race theory curriculum in the schools.Tanner’s company has a big footprint within K-12 education across the country.
Panorama describes its business as supporting “13 million students in 23,000 schools and 1,500 districts across 50 states.”
Panorama contracts with 50+ of the nation’s 100 largest school districts.
