Families, communities, and nations are stronger when parents are appropriately involved in the lives of their children. One of the many ways that parents should be involved is in the education of their children. Yet, there are people in the United States who do not want parents to know what their children are learning in school. Obviously, the schools want to teach the children something for which the parents would not give their permission!
The U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 5 The Parents Bill of Rights Act last week. The Democrat-led U.S. Senate will not pass the bill, so it will never become law. However, it is good for Americans to know that Republicans want to remind school boards that parents are in charge of the education of their children.
Representative Rich McCormick (R-Georgia) is a Marine veteran and emergency room physician, and he recently wrote about the bill that he helped to pass.
Last week, I had the honor of helping pass HR 5, the Parents Bill of Rights Act, in Congress. Parents have a right to guide their child’s education and to know what’s being taught in the classroom, as moms and dads are reminding school boards across the country.
Our legislation puts parents in the driver’s seat, where they belong.
It’s hard to imagine who would fight against the tidal wave of support for parental rights and school choice these days. But earlier this month, Democratic state legislators in my home state of Georgia were trying to stop several successful bills that would expand education options for families. Shockingly, their reasoning was that disadvantaged families are too uneducated to have a say over their children’s schooling.
There is an educational revolution in the United States, and it is picking up speed. Parents are demanding that they have school choice and parental rights. No one has the right to stand between parents and their children. You can strengthen your family, community, and nation by standing up for parental rights in the education of their children and for school choice.
