But the QAnon-supporting Greene, who was stripped of her House committee assignments for spouting tinfoil-hat theories, bashed the proposal as just another conspiracy.
“Federally funded school from age 3 to 20 doesn’t sound like education, it sounds like indoctrination,” she tweeted. “All at your expense. By force in the form of taxes.”
Twitter educated Greene, reminding her that tax dollars cover the public education system already in place.
Oddly, Greene seemed to generally understand the concept of free public schools in a tweet earlier in the day backing parents revolting against student mask mandates. “Taxes pay for the schools,” she wrote.
But she appeared to forget that during Biden’s speech.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article stated that federal funds pay for public education. While federal funds are one source, local and state taxes account for the bulk of school funding. The article has been updated to reflect that public schools are primarily funded by tax dollars.
