January 31, 2022 Government Domain Newsletter: Curriculum Transparency - Thank you Blessing Breakfast Supporters
“The people who walk in darkness will see a great light;Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them”.Isaiah 9:12
Schools thrive when parents are involved in their children’s education. In order for parents to participate, they need to know what’s being taught in our schools.
Over the years, many schools throughout the country, and even here in Arizona, have been indoctrinating children with philosophies that include Critical Race Theory, Fluid Gender Theory, Marxism and other curriculum that goes against many parents’ value system. Often, the nature of the subject is disguised by changing the name. An example is Tucson Unified School District teaching harmful Comprehensive Sexuality Education under the name “Family Life Curriculum”.
The Arizona Legislature is taking action to allow transparency in what is being taught in our public schools. SB 1211, introduced by Senator Nancy Barto, will require schools to post on their websites all curriculum and learning material used in the classrooms and assemblies.
In order for legislation to be voted on by the complete House and Senate, it first has to pass a committee vote. This Tuesday, February 1, 2022, the Senate Education Committee will hear SB 1211. Please contact the members of the Senate Education Committee and let them know we want sunlight shined on what is being taught in our public schools.
Please watch this video from the Goldwater Institute to learn about the national movement they are championing called the “Sunlight in Learning Act”.
