Parental Rights and Transparency

Parents have the right to direct the education and moral upbringing of their children. This right is enshrined in many state constitutions and has been repeatedly upheld in Supreme Court decisions. Additionally, the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA)—often used by gender ideology activists as an excuse not to tell parents about their child’s decision to transition sexes—affirms parents’ rights and holds public educators and administrators accountable for failing to disclose vital information about the wellbeing of a child to his or her parent. 

PPRA gives parents the right to know what is taught in their child’s school. Moreover, this law gives parents the right to opt out of surveys or curricula that contradicts their moral or religious beliefs.
