(The Daily Signal) – Parents should have the right to know what their children are being taught in school and to have their voices heard when they have concerns.
That’s why Rep. Julia Letlow, R-La. says she introduced the Parents Bill of Rights.
“It’s actually appalling to me … that we have to have a Parents Bill of Rights, but in today’s age, it’s absolutely necessary, because parents always deserve a seat at the table when it comes to their child’s education,” Letlow says.
The House passed the bill in March without a single Democrat supporting the measure. The Senate has yet to bring the Parents Bill of Rights to the floor for a vote.
“I know there’s been some interest from my Senate colleagues on the other side, but I’m hopeful that one of them will come forward and take it up,” Letlow says.
The Louisiana congresswoman joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss why a Parents Bill of Rights is needed. She also weighs in on the dismantling of the Department of Education, and why President Joe Biden’s student-loan forgiveness efforts are not the answer to young people’s college debt.
