Parents Bill of Rights Act

Floor Speech

Date: March 23, 2023
Location: Washington, DC


Mr. GUEST. Mr. Chair, in many places across our great Nation, parents are being denied, being denied a voice in discussions around what their children are being taught in schools.

As Republicans, in our Commitment to America, we made a promise, a promise to establish the rights of parents to protect their children from indoctrination in our classrooms.

As a product of the public school system and father of two sons who graduated from public school, I understand the significant role our schools play in the education of our future leaders.

However, far-left ideas have seeped into America's classrooms and have blurred the line between education and indoctrination. We cannot allow that to continue.

This bill simply protects the rights of parents, the rights of parents to know what their children are being taught, what their children are hearing in school, the right to see the budget that the school is spending, the right to protect their children's privacy, and the right to keep their children safe.

Simply put, this bill protects those parents who want to play a role in their child's life and to protect their children from indoctrination in the classroom.

I encourage all my colleagues to support this critical and commonsense piece of legislation.
