In 60 Seconds: Parental Rights In Education

In 60 Seconds – Parental Rights

What’s at Stake

Public school students are being used by activists as political pawns

As a result of teachers union actions and overzealous school district policies, students in public school districts across the country have been:

  • Denied access to in-person learning. Many have fallen behind as a result—and have not caught up.
  • Forced to wear masks in the classroom despite negligible evidence of any health benefits and growing concern of harm.
  • Taught components of Critical Race Theory (CRT), a deeply-flawed theory that divides students and teaches them to mistrust one another.
  • Exposed to age inappropriate sexual topics. Some schools are actively transitioning children without parental consent. Anti-parent tactics are being employed in pursuit of a leftist agenda.
  • Schools are withholding pertinent information from parents, such as the classroom curriculum and their child’s gender identity.
  • Those who dare to speak out have been labeled “domestic terrorists” by the FBI, run out of public schools, or targeted by school board officials.

Students Deserve Better

Parents should be kept informed and be involved in all decision-making when it comes to the education of their children

  • As parents, we know what is best for our children. To ensure that children are provided with the educational opportunities they need to succeed in life, parents should be in the driver’s seat.
  • Educators have an obligation to keep parents informed about their child’s educational experience and the curriculum they are using in the classroom.
  • Masking should be an individual and parent-driven choice for children who are at low risk for disease related to COVID-19. Whatever decision parents make, schools have a responsibility to treat all children with dignity and respect.
  • Parents need more leverage. Instead of funding systems, funding should follow students so parents can make educational choices that reflect their values.
