Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, a senior member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, today joined Speaker Kevin McCarthy and her colleagues to introduce the Parents Bill of Rights to ensure parents, not the government, are the primary stakeholders in their child’s education.

“Parents are the primary stakeholders in their child’s education, and they have a right to know what is going on inside their child’s classroom,” Stefanik said. “For the first time in the new majority in the House, House Republicans are introducing our Parents Bill of Rights to bring our parents’ concerns to the highest levels. In the face of the woke agenda and radical CRT the Far Left is pushing even in the midst of the devastating learning loss, we are ensuring parents have the transparency to know if their child is being properly equipped in the classroom. House Republicans are laser-focused on putting parents back in the driver’s seat, and this is a critical step forward in fulfilling our Commitment to America and creating a future that is based on freedom.”
The Parents Bill of Rights provides parents the following rights:
- Parents have the right to know what their children are being taught
- Parents have the right to be heard
- Parents have the right to see the school budget and spending
- Parents have the right to protect their child’s privacy
- Parents have the right to keep their children safe
Stefanik is proud to stand up for parents, opposes any attempt to silence parents, and has led the charge in exposing the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice’s targeting of parents.
