A New Hampshire Democratic lawmaker is drawing attention for telling a parent Wednesday to "shut up" and "let the teachers teach."

The parent had emailed New Hampshire state Representative Tommy Hoyt urging him to support a law that would establish a parents' bill of rights in education. 

"Do you know why children's results tanked during covid? Their parents were incompetent teachers. Do your children a favor, let the teachers teach, and shut up. You're clearly no professional," Hoyt responded.
