FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Governor Ron DeSantis Signing the Parental Rights in Education Bill Into Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Gov. Ron DeSantis signing the Parental Rights in Education bill, HB 1557, into law, Laura Zorc, FreedomWorks Director of Education Reform, commented:

“Despite the many lies and relentless attacks on parental rights by the national media, woke corporations, and Democratic leaders, this bill’s passage means that Florida parents will now enjoy greater control and transparency over their children’s education. It is the fundamental right of parents to make decisions regarding the education and upbringing of their children. HB 1557 reinforces that right and protects Florida families.”

“We applaud Gov. DeSantis for signing the Parental Rights in Education bill into law and protecting parental rights in Florida. This law is one of many steps to ensure that parents, not bureaucrats, are in control of their children’s education. HB 1557 is a model for the nation to follow.”
