The NFA Daily Spotlight: Keep Age-Inappropriate Topics Out Of Nebraska’s School Curriculum
Governor Ricketts joined the NFA Daily Spotlight this week to discuss the proposed health education standards from the Nebraska Department of Education. If approved, the health education standards—written by political activists—would modify public school curriculum across Nebraska to include non-scientific, agenda-driven information about sex, abortion, and gender identity. Parents, not school districts, have a responsibility to teach their children about sensitive topics at the appropriate age and the right to raise their children according to their values.
Governor Ricketts is calling on the Nebraska State Board of Education to scrap the draft standards and seek input from parents on what to teach children about healthy living. Children’s minds, bodies, and hearts should be nurtured and protected by adults, not sexualized in their classrooms. Contact the State Board of Education, and ask them to remove sensitive topics from the proposed health education standards.
