Senator Introduces Education Bill to Give Power Back to Parents, Not "Woke Bureaucrats"

Matt Lamb : Nov 22, 2021  LifeSiteNews

The legislation would protect the rights of parents to attend school board meetings, view curricula, and protect data. It would also increase government transparency by requiring schools to disclose what outside contractors and groups are coming into the schools. The bill requires schools and other educational entities to allow parents to "fully review" and "make copies" of all "curricula, books, and other educational materials."

U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley's "Parents' Bill of Rights" has been introduced in the Senate as part of a pending education funding law. The legislation would protect the rights of parents to attend school board meetings, view curricula, and protect data. It would also increase government transparency by requiring schools to disclose what outside contractors and groups are coming into the schools.

The bill requires schools and other educational entities to allow parents to "fully review" and "make copies" of all "curricula, books, and other educational materials."

It creates a right for parents to view syllabi and reading lists, too.

The legislation also ensures parents can "access information on the teachers, guest lecturers, and outside presenters who engage with students at the school." Outside groups such as Planned Parenthood and Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) regularly teach sexual education to children. Both groups push birth control and abortion.

It could also help parents be informed when their kids start claiming they are transgender or gender-fluid. A Wisconsin school district recently announced a policy to hide from parents when students are or claim to be "transgender," or gender dysphoric.

Sen. Hawley's bill also protects student data. It would prohibit the collection of "biometric data or other sensitive personal information" by the school without permission from the parents. It would also allow parents to prevent schools from taking video, photos, or audio recordings of their children.

Hawley's proposed legislation also appears to take direct aim at a move by Attorney General Merrick Garland and the National School Boards Association to limit access to public school board meetings.
