Calls are needed today to support H.B. 1858, a Parents’ Bill of Rights that has been introduced in the Missouri House of Representatives. H.B. 1858 is scheduled for a committee hearing in the House Elementary and Secondary Education Committee this Tuesday, February 15, at 8 AM.
If passed into law, H.B. 1858, the Parents’ Bill of Rights, will do the following:
- Give parents the right to know what their children are being taught in public schools;
- Give parents the right to visit their children during the school day;
- Protect the privacy and biometric data of children;
- Require school board meetings regarding curriculum, school safety, and student issues to be held in public and allow for public comments;
- Prohibit school districts from requiring parents to sign nondisclosure agreements before viewing public school curricula;
- And provide additional protections to parents and their children in public schools.
ParentalRights.org strongly supports this bill. Please call your Missouri State Representative today and urge him or her to support H.B. 1858. Your message can be as simple as the following:
“Please support H.B. 1858, the Parents’ Bill of Rights. This critical bill will allow parents of public school students to be involved in their children’s education, and will protect children’s personal information and data.”
If passed into law, H.B. 1858 will allow Missouri to join the growing number of states across the nation that ensure that parents are able to be involved in their children’s public schools and know what is being taught in the classroom.
Thank you for standing with us for parental rights!
