House Republicans leaders have announced their Parents Bill of Rights Act, which has sparked immediate criticism from one of the largest teachers unions.
House GOP Conference Chairwoman Rep. Elise Stefanik says the legislation ensures parents have the right to know what's being taught to their children in the classroom.
“For the first time in the new majority in the House, House Republicans are introducing our Parents Bill of Rights to bring our parents’ concerns to the highest levels," the New York congresswoman said.
"In the face of the woke agenda and radical CRT the Far Left is pushing even in the midst of the devastating learning loss, we are ensuring parents have the transparency to know if their child is being properly equipped in the classroom."
The National Education Association says House Speaker Kevin McCarthy "would rather seek to stoke racial and social division and distract us from what will really help our students thrive: an inspiring, inclusive, and age-appropriate curriculum that prepares each and every one of them for their future.”
The National Parents Union also is criticizing the legislation.
“Keep culture wars out of classrooms," the group said. "Our children need urgent and aggressive educational solutions, not political performance theatre."
