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.
