Texas Stands with Parental Rights
June 13, 2023
Governor Abbott has signed four bills that uphold parental rights in Texas, passed by the recently ended state legislative session. The four bills do the following:
- HB 900 – prohibits the use of age-inappropriate books in the school.
- HB 1605 – allows parents to review what is being taught to their children.
- HB 1926 – empowers parents of students with special needs.
- HB 3803 – gives parents the ability to decide if students should repeat grades.
American Federation For Children Senior Fellow Corey DeAngelis reacted to the legislation, stating the "package of bills is a great step in the right direction towards securing parental rights in education."
