Parental Rights

Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson is the featured speaker at an upcoming gathering hosted by Alaska Parental Rights in Education. Part of a larger national network, the Alaska chapter is dedicated to mobilizing and equipping parents to defend their fundamental right to direct and influence the education and formation of their children.

Parents’ Rights in Education is a national nonprofit that advocates for strong relationships between parents and students, parents and schools, and healthy communities.

The Alaska chapter formed last year and now includes a Facebook group of nearly 1,800 members. Over the past year it has focused on empowering parents to oppose critical race theory, explicit sex education, Common Core curriculum and social emotional learning initiatives.

Some of the group’s goals include, establishing a parental bill of rights in state statute, informing public school teachers about how to best opt out of the left-leaning National Education Association union, passing statewide school choice legislation and ensuring American history is free of leftist ideology.

The Nov. 15 event takes place at the Anchorage Loussac Library (4th floor) from 6-8 p.m., and is open to the public.

“We support the parents’ role in helping to ensure that students are best served,” a notice for the Anchorage event states. “Whether you are a parent, a student, or a community member who cares about education and families, you are invited!

The gathering includes an address by Anchorage Assembly candidate Stephanie Taylor, who is vying to unseat Assemblyman Forrest Dunbar this coming spring. Anchorage School Board candidate Mark Anthony Cox will also speak to attendees.

Refreshments will be provided.

    What kind of person would leave their child in a school run by Communists perverts that hate them?

    • mhs says:

      The kind of people who do not have access or funding for private schools, home schooling supplies and/or who need to go to work so are unable to home school send their children to public schools. In a perfect world we could all do just as we wished but this is not a perfect world. The schools need to change. This group should be commended for trying to fix the education system instead of simply washing their hands of it and leaving the less fortunate to suffer the consequences. We pay for the public schools and they should remember that.

        mhs, You are absolutely correct regarding those who do NOT have access to private schools and home schooling. The lower income parents and single parents suffer the most. And to top that off, most AK public schools hide their failures re reading & math achievement.

    Stand. up now the imp[laced in our govt, Our schools Our Media are all yes men to the Genocidal slaughter in this depopulation plan.
    Our Children need us. Its way past time we dismantle this evil bastard agenda.

  • jh says:

    President Trump ended federal funding for schools that taught critical race theory.
    Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money!
    Florida and Texas have passed laws to ban critical race theory teaching in schools.
    Alaska must do the same.
    In the meantime, put cameras in the classrooms and let’s get a new board of Education NOW!
