If you give this list to your elected Officials, they might say that a lot of this is in law right now, and they would be half-right.
The problem is that there is no way to effectively enforce these rules. ISDs will respond to requests to examine curriculum with very strict rules prohibiting video and note-taking, and claims to copyright protection to prevent parents from really exposing the ISD’s agenda.
Parental Bill of Rights
PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT THEIR CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT
- Curriculum Inspection – parents have the right to inspect all lessons unsupervised, including teacher versions, online applications, library books, and other materials, based on Fair Use.
- Teacher Training – Parents have a right to know what continuing and certification courses that their children’s teachers have taken for which they have received any sort of credit.
SCHOOLS MUST RESPECT ALL STUDENTS AND PARENTS EQUALLY
- Parent Visits – Schools must allow parents to allow visits to children during school hours.
- Right to Petition – Parents may address trustees on any subject during an open meeting, whether at its start or during consideration of any subject on its agenda without limitation.
- Safe Environment – Parents have the right to timely information concerning the safety of their children, including ongoing school incidents, and crimes committed by district personnel.
- End CRT Committees – ISDs must dismantle the CRT-based committees that thrive on division between those of different ancestry.
MEDICAL DECISIONS BELONG TO PARENTS
- No Secret Treatments - Schools may not assume consent for any medical treatment or discriminate based on vaccine or other medical status and must also obtain consent before addressing any social, emotional, or physical health issues, with full transparency to parents.
- Parental Authority Trumps - Parents’ wishes must supersede opinions of school counselors, teachers, and nurses on matters of character, morality, and religious teaching.
PARENTS MAY ENFORCE THESE RIGHTS BY CIVIL SUIT
- Civil Suit - Parents may enforce these rights by civil suit without completing a long grievance process designed to wear them down, may obtain injunctive relief to stop violations of these rights and be awarded fees.
- Trustee Removal - Taxpayers must have the right to seek removal of trustees who offend parental rights by recall elections, or trial when warranted.
