“Parents Bill of Rights” Up for Hearing

Republican lawmakers in Madison are expected to approve another doomed plan that would change how schools across the state work. 

The Parents Bill of Rights is up for a hearing in an Assembly committee today.  CJ Szafir with the Institute for Reforming Government say the plan would spell-out that parents are in charge of their child’s education, and make sure that schools respect that.  Among the rights in the plan is the right for parents to see assignments and to be told about upcoming lessons.  There’s also a right to opt-out of some classes, and a right to speak to the local school board. 

Governor Tony Evers is expected to veto the plan if it makes it to his desk.
