Schoolchildren children in Nebraska should not be subjected to the new, harmful Health Education Standards proposed by the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE). The proposed standards seek to impose radical, politicized, and age-inappropriate information and ideas about sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity onto young schoolchildren.
The public’s response to the first draft of the Health Standards has been overwhelmingly in opposition, and parents have been making their concerns known to the State Board of Education for months.
Nebraskans have spoken loudly and clearly. Now is the time for local school boards to take action.
To help empower parents and local school boards to oppose the proposed Health Standards, retain local control over their school’s health curriculums, and reaffirm the rights of parents as primary educators of their own children, NFA is helping provide resolution language and encouraging local school boards across the state to formally adopt the resolution rejecting the proposed Health Standards.
The following resolution can be adopted by local school boards in Nebraska to formally reject the proposed Health Standards from the NDE, retain local control over their school’s health curriculums, and reaffirm the rights of parents as the primary educators of their own children.
