GA Gubernatorial Candidate David Perdue Unveils Plan For Parents 

Former Senator and Georgia gubernatorial candidate David Perdue is hitting the campaign trail running with a “Parents’ Bill of Rights” that seeks to improve transparency between parents and schools amid the pandemic. 

Modeled on a similar proposal introduced by Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), the Bill of Rights gives parents increased access to information regarding safety procedures, funding, and curricula. 

The proposal, which is largely a response to Republican criticism regarding school closures and the teaching of Critical Race Theory, requires schools to disclose exactly what is being taught to students and by whom – including guest speakers – and to notify parents of any violence or crime that takes place on campus. 

“Education has taken a back seat to radical politics in many schools and parents are taking notice,” says Hawley. “It’s time to give control back to parents, not woke bureaucrats, and empower them to start a new era of openness in education.” 

Perdue’s Bill of Rights would also allow parents to visit during school hours and make copies of classroom materials. Schools that fail to comply would be punished through lawsuits (from parents) or funding cuts (from the federal government). 

“The woke left is making a sustained effort to shut parents out of schools, and we need to fight back. Our kids’ futures are at stake in this election. Schools have shut down, and kids have fallen further and further behind on our current governor’s watch,” argues Perdue. “A Parents’ Bill of Rights will create more transparency in our school systems and empower parents to be involved in their children’s education. What’s being taught in our schools should not be a secret.”

If Perdue defeats incumbent Brian Kemp (R) in the primary election, he is expected to face off against Stacey Abrams (D) – a former minority leader of Georgia’s House of Representatives who like other Democrats is pushing to overhaul voting laws.

  1. I think Perdue has the right idea of parents being aware of what is being taught in our schools, there is too much BS about transgenders there is no transgenders born you are either born a girl or a boy, CRT is trying to teach our kids that go to school together to hate each other because of skin color, lets face it the only difference in these kids is skin color otherwise they are the same under the skin, they are kids and left alone they will accept each other if no one teaches them to hate

  2. Weren’t parents SUPPOSED to.be involved in what’s being taught to our kids!? I was for mine….my parents were for all of us kids….but now it’s a crime!? I’m so glad I grew up in a world and for parents who gave a damn for their kids!!
    Politics have NO PLACE in schools…..listen to your children talk and take note of what they’re saying!
    BLESSED BE THE CHILDREN

  3. We need to make it a federal law that any public school district that accepts federal funds must offer voucher for education for every child to attend whatever school they want
