STATEMENT: AFPI Praises the Passage of the Parents Bill of Rights Act
March 24, 2023
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) released the following statement from Brooke Rollins, President and CEO of AFPI, on the House passage of the Parents Bill of Rights Act, which is designed to strengthen transparency in the classroom:
“The parent empowerment movement sweeping the Nation is in direct response to the widespread abuse of power by the institutions entrusted with educating our children. From the weaponization of the Department of Justice in labeling parents as ‘domestic terrorists’ to the woke teachings that are spewed with the intention of advancing political and ideological agendas in classrooms, parents all across the country have stepped up to protect our most vulnerable.
In America, it is parents who are in charge of their children — not a faceless bureaucracy, the teachers’ unions, or woke school administrators. As such, all parents have a fundamental right to see what their children are being taught and to protect them when necessary.
As the mother of four school-aged children, I applaud the House for taking the critical first step of passing the Parents Bill of Rights Act, which solidifies the God-given and legal rights parents should always have when it comes to their children’s education.”
