Parents and educators across the state delivered a clear message to the Nebraska Department of Education and State Board of Education—children belong to their parents and guardians, not the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE).

Nebraska Family Alliance applauds courage and the strong voices of parents throughout this process. Their leadership and advocacy led to the removal of much of the ideologically driven and ill-conceived content in the first draft of the NDE’s health education standards.

The newly released second draft rightly acknowledges the fundamental role of parents and guardians as the primary educators of their children. Furthermore, the new draft shows deference to local control in a way that is fitting and proper.

However, issues remain in the new draft of these standards that must be addressed. We will spend more time with this draft and provide specific, constructive feedback to the Department of Education and State Board of Education.

Review the new draft, give feedback, and contact your representative!

We encourage parents, educators, and all Nebraskans to review the new draft, give feedback, and contact their representative on the State Board of Education. And as always, remain diligent in following educational matters at local and state levels.
