I have a parenting plan in place with my ex husband regarding our daughter. He wants me to inform him of things of school do I?

Sorry to hear you ar having some difficulty with the coparenting relationship. Your question is a little complicated and I won't be able to answer fully because I don't have your parenting plan. Your parenting plan is a special "law" when it comes to how you and the other parent are to interact.
But there are also other laws that affect everyone: statutes (from the legislature) and other cases. In general, you do not have to keep the other parent informed of what's going on in school. The law allows each parent equal access to that information. But it can be a good idea if there is something that will happen during the other parent's time, to let him know about it. An after school activity that your daughter doesn't want to miss, for example.
It does sound like he is being emotionally manipulative. That shouldn't happen. There are some ways to stop that kind of behavior but you will want to discuss in detail and in private what is actually going on to get all your options.
Be careful about giving too much time away. Regular deviation from a parenting plan can turn into grounds to change the parenting plan and make those deviations more permanent and no longer options.
