If we have learned anything over the past few years, it is that parents must have more control over what their children are taught in school.
More and more, public schools have become tools of indoctrination, where critical race theory, the LGBT+ agenda, and transgender ideology are actively pushed onto children. Meanwhile, traditional values and Christian teaching are scorned.
Worst of all, this happens without the knowledge of parents, who often have to show up at school board meetings just to find out about the curriculum in their local school.
Combined with the learning loss experienced during the pandemic, our schools are in a critical state. Parents must take action now.
Fortunately, a group of education-minded congressmen and congresswomen in the House of Representatives (including our friend, Rep. Burgess Owens) have taken an important step by passing the Parent’s Bill of Rights.
This important legislation protects the right of parents to know what is being taught in schools, to make themselves heard, to see school budgets, to be updated on violent activity at schools, and to protect their child’s privacy.
If you have watched the tense board meetings where parents exposed the spread of critical race theory in their schools or have seen the stories of teachers that encouraged a child to become transgender without the knowledge of his or her parents, you know how important this legislation is.
We must defend parents’ rights if we want to fix our schools.
The bill now goes to the Senate, where it may face a tough challenge. We encourage you to contact your senator today and let them know what you think about the Parents’ Bill of Rights.
