WASHINGTON (TND) — The House passed the Parents Bill of Rights which aims to increase school transparency. The bill would require schools to publicly publish their curricula.
Parents Defending Education Investigative reporter Alex Nester joined The National Desk’s Jan Jeffcoat Friday morning to discuss the issue.
“The Parents Bill of Rights really enshrines rights that parents already have. Rights to direct the education, upbringing and care of their children,” she said. “It also enshrines their First Amendment rights to speak up at school board meetings, and would make sure that parents are notified if and when their child decides to live as another gender identity at school.”
The legislation passed in a 213-208 vote and is on its way to the Senate.
Nester says parental rights are an important issue, saying, “parental rights are a nonpartisan issue. So it's uncertain whether or not this is going to get through to the Senate.”
