House Republicans PASSED It – 213-208!
(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Friday, House Republicans passed an education bill that would highlight the importance of parental rights in the classroom. This law further plays into the GOP’s latest messaging about fighting a culture war, which has gained traction within GOP circles across the country.
The legislation, titled the Parents Bill of Rights, passed in a 213-208 vote and it is now being considered by the Senate. It is also unlikely that the Democratic-controlled chamber is going to allow the bill to pass, especially as Democrats have dubbed it the “Politics over Parents Act.”
Republican Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Ken Buck (Colo.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Mike Lawler (N.Y.), and Matt Rosendale (Mont.) have all sided with Democratic opposition to this measure.
If passed, the measure would mandate that schools would need to publish their curricula publicly and would allow parents to meet with their children’s teachers and schools would need to provide parents with information regarding any violence that takes place on school grounds. It would also be required for parents to be given a list of books and reading materials that are accessible in the school library. Parents would also be given a say when schools were changing or drafting their policies and procedures in a number of different areas, including student privacy.
Republicans have repeatedly blamed the Democrats for supposedly trying to paint parents as a threat. The legislation further stated that school and government officials should not be allowed to use law enforcement against the “lawfully expressed concerns of parents about their children’s education.”
