House Republicans Will Restore Parents' Voices with H.R. 5, the Parents Bill of Rights

House Republicans will continue our fight to create a future that’s built on freedom with H.R. 5, the Parents’ Bill of Rights. This is a critical piece of the House Republicans’ Commitment to America because we know that parents are the primary stakeholders in their children’s education, and must have their voices restored. 

PILLARS OF THE PARENTS' BILL OF RIGHTS (Courtesy of Speaker McCarthy): 

  • Right to know what’s being taught in schools and to see reading material.
  • Right to be heard.
  • Right to see school budget and spending.
  • Right to protect their child’s privacy.
  • Right to be updated on any violent activity at school.

  • In March, House Republicans, led by Congresswoman Julia Letlow and Speaker McCarthy, reintroduced the Parents Bill of Rights to put power back in the hands of parents and empower them with information they need to ensure their children receive the best education.
  • According to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll, Americans trust Republicans more than Democrats when it comes to education, and it’s not hard to see why:
    • The Biden Administration reportedly “solicited the much-criticized letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA)” that compared concerned parents to “domestic terrorists” in September 2021.
    • The Biden Administration is threatening Title IX by allowing the NCAA to permit biological men to compete—and win—in women and girls’ sports.
    • The majority of Americans disagree with allowing biological men to compete against biological women in sports.
    • According to a new survey by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), roughly half of America’s students began this past school year behind in at least one subject. This is 13 percentage points higher than the national average in years prior to 2020. 
    • In 2021 and 2022, a “national state of emergency” was declared by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the Children’s Hospital Association in response to rising depression and anxiety in students during extended COVID-19 lockdowns and forced remote learning.
