Parents Bill of Rights

Paul and Carolyn believe in the rights that are listed below for Illinois parents.

Illinois Parents’ Bill of Rights

Parents, not the government, have the authority and responsibility to raise their children to the best of their ability in accordance with their values. The following rights shall be given to Illinois parents who are raising minor children.

 

  • Parents, acting through locally elected school boards, have the right to control public schools in their respective districts. Local school boards will make curriculum, safety, and closure decisions. Children have the right to an education free from political indoctrination of any kind.
  • The ability of parents to educate their children through homeschooling or enrollment in private schools shall not be infringed by the state of Illinois. No official representing the state of Illinois shall have the authority to order the closure of private schools.
  • Parents with daughters shall have the right to see their daughters flourish by having a fair chance to compete in sporting activities where they are not at a biological disadvantage due to their sex.
  • The parent, not the state, has primary responsibility and authority for the physical and mental wellness of their children. Parents will have knowledge of and control over any medical procedures and medicine that a child may be provided. Furthermore, schools will not provide non-emergency medical treatment or medical referrals to a child without the consent of a parent or a court order.
  • A parent shall be present during (or consulted prior to) the custodial questioning of their child by law enforcement personnel.
  • Parents have the right to review video footage (including footage from body cameras) and social media content of their child that is in the possession of law enforcement personnel or school administrators.
  • Parents, not the state, will control the transition from childhood to adulthood of their children. Parents have the right to “opt out” of subjects taught in public and private schools in which they choose not to have their children participate.
  • Parents have the right to have the taxes for schools go to either the public school or the private school of their choice.
