ATLANTA, GA – David Perdue, Trump-endorsed candidate for Governor, today announced his vision for a Georgia Parents’ Bill of Rights that would protect parents’ rights to be involved in their children’s education:
“The woke left is making a sustained effort to shut parents out of schools, and we need to fight back. Our kids’ futures are at stake in this election. Schools have shut down, and kids have fallen further and further behind on our current Governor’s watch. A Parents’ Bill of Rights will create more transparency in our school systems and empower parents to be involved in their children’s education. What’s being taught in our schools should not be a secret. Curricula, books, and other instructional materials should be easily available to parents, and as Governor, I’ll ensure that happens. Both my mom and dad were public school teachers, and I will help foster productive relationships between parents and teachers to help our students grow and learn.”
Building off of U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley’s Parents’ Bill of Rights Act, Perdue supports a Georgia Parents’ Bill of Rights that includes the following:
The right to know what their minor child is being taught in school, including, curricula, books, and any other instructional materials.
The right to information on who is teaching their minor child, including guest lecturers and outside presenters.
The right to information on individuals and organizations receiving school contracts and funding.
The right to visit the school and check in on their minor child during school hours.
The right to all school records, medical or otherwise, concerning their minor child.
The right to information about the collection and transmission of their minor child’s data.
The right to have sufficient accountability and transparency regarding school boards.
The right to know about situations affecting their minor child’s safety in school.
The right to information on individuals and organizations providing funding or materials used in schools.
Under the Georgia Parents’ Bill of Rights, parents would be allowed to sue for relief if schools do not protect certain fundamental rights.
