Parents Bill of Rights Passes House!
March 24, 2023
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Parents Bill of Rights on Friday with a total vote of 213-208. Among many pro-parent policies, this bill requires every public school to publish curricula as well as share what books are in the library. Moreover, this bill ensures that the National Association of School Boards cannot repeat their past attacks on parents, including by calling them domestic terrorists, by stating that the government should not use law enforcement as a response to parent’s voicing their opinions about their children’s education.
“It is not an attempt to have Congress dictate their curriculum or determine the books in the library,” she added. “Instead, this bill aims to bring more transparency and accountability to education, allowing parents to be informed and when they have questions and concerns to lawfully bring them to their local school boards.”
