(BECKER NEWS) – Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a ‘Parents Bill of Rights’ that would give Americans more say over schools’ education of their children.
HB 241 was sent to the governor’s desk on Friday after being passed during the legislative session that ended on April 30. It spells out the rights of parents to “direct the education and care of his or her minor child,” which includes the right to “access and review all school records” related to the students.
It would also allow for opt-outs regarding any LGBTQ or sex education classes, as well as the right to opt children out of getting certain vaccinations. Those who back the bill see it is a necessary means to check a school system that has gotten increasingly aggressive and politicized.
