Madison, WI — The theme of Tuesday’s Wisconsin State Assembly session was education. A plethora of bills were passed and State Representative Alex Dallman voted in support of all of them.
“Parents around the State of Wisconsin feel as if their voices aren’t being heard in regards to their children’s education,” said Representative Dallman. “Today’s package of education reform bills will expand clarity, accountability, and most importantly, will put children and their parents first,” continued Representative Dallman.
The Assembly passed a package that included the “Parental Bill of Rights”, which prohibits the state from infringing on the fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, health care, and mental health of their children. The bill package also establishes uniform standards for school accountability reports, a parental opt-out from mask mandates in school buildings, and a requirement for school boards to offer children a full-time, in-person learning option.
“Parents will be thrilled to know that these bills will help provide them with the tools they need to be able to be more involved in their children’s education and well-being,” said Representative Dallman.
The education reform bills will now head to the senate for a vote.
