Support the Bill to Protect Kids from Explicit Materials in Schools

SB 1277 Would Empower Parents and Protect Students 

Bill 1277, sponsored by Senator Ryan Aument, would protect children from sexually explicit materials in schools. It would simply require schools to notify parents about materials that are sexually explicit, allow parents to opt their children out, and require their child be given a non-explicit alternative. 

Parents across Pennsylvania have found disturbing sexual materials in their children’s school books - materials so explicit they cannot be read in a public schoolboard meeting or shared in a Senate Education committee meeting; yet, children are given explicit materials unacceptable for adults to view at work! Senator Aument shared just a few examples of some of those materials on a webpage here which contains blurred copies of the original materials.

This bill is common sense and shows respect to parents who know their children best and  know that educational concepts can be taught without the need to expose children to explicit materials. SB 1277 protects children and supports a flourishing educational environment. The Bill passed in the Senate, by a vote of 30 to 20.  It now moves to the Pennsylvania House for a vote.

Email your State Representative and ask for them to support the Parental Notification of Sexually Explicit Content in Schools Act SB 1277.
