‘Parents’ Bill Of Rights’ Underscores Furor Over Curriculum And Transparency In Schools

New legislation in Congress to prioritize parents’ rights to know what books their children are reading in school and the identity of guest presenters in classrooms underscores how such culturally divisive issues could stay in the political spotlight as conservative politicians champion what they see as a winning issue in 2022.

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said his “Parents’ Bill of Rights Act”—introduced Tuesday, according to his office—would prohibit nondisclosure agreements concerning curriculum; let parents make copies of classroom material; require schools to have parents opt their children into field trips, assemblies, and other extracurricular activities; and in general require more transparency from school boards and educators concerning things like student records and safety.

His legislation would also institute cuts in federal funding for districts that repeatedly flout such requirements, and would allow parents to sue and get injunctive relief.

What is Class?
==============

"Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident in the
knowledge that you can meet life head on and handle whatever comes
along."

"Jacob had it. Esau didn't. Symbolically, we can look to Jacob's
wrestling match with the angel. Those who have class have wrestled
with their own personal angel and won a victory that marks them
thereafter."

"Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past
mistakes."

"Class is considerate of others. It knows that good manners are
nothing more than a series of small sacrifices."

"Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors
or money. The most affluent blueblood can be totally without class
while the descendant of a Welsh miner may ooze class from every pore."

"Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is
already up and need not strive to look better by making others look
worse."

"Class can "walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds
and keep the common touch." Everyone is comfortable with the person
who has class because he is comfortable with himself."

"If you have class you don't need much of anything else. If you don't
have it, no matter what else you have, it doesn't make much
difference." ~Ann Landers
