STATEMENT: PDE Action Supports Eyes on the Board Act

October 18, 2023

Excessive use of social media is taking a devastating toll on America’s youth. Whether it’s their mental health, academic performance, or ability to focus, children are suffering from serious consequences of spending too much time on platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.

Addressing this widespread crisis should be a priority for every elected official in government. That is why Parents Defending Education Action is proud to support Sens. Cruz, Budd, and Capito’s Eyes on the Board Act. This is exactly the kind of forward thinking that will help ease parents’ concerns, restore transparency for families, and help kids succeed in the classroom.

We look forward to working with the Senators, and all co-sponsors, in ensuring this bill becomes a reality so we can make meaningful progress in protecting children from the dangers of social media.
