Parental Concerns Over Education Increase Ahead of Midterm Election

Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.7

There has been an increase in incidents of schools concealing children’s sexual behaviors from parents. A recent survey conducted by Rasmussen reported 77% of voters see education issues as “important” in the midterms, and 45% say education will be “very important.” Meg Kilgannon, senior fellow for Education Studies at Family Research Council, said, “Under some school policies, teachers are prevented from informing parents about their own children’s concerns at school but instructed to definitely inform other administrators. School policies and practices called ‘gender plans’ seem to assume parents do not have the best interest of their child in mind. These kinds of policies center the school as the savior of the child.”
