Make Sure Every Student Can Succeed and Give Parents a Voice
When schools shut down, teachers unions still got paid but students bore the costs. All studies show that “virtual schooling” has caused severe learning and development loss that will take years to make up. What’s worse, when parents tried to understand what their children were being taught and how their tax dollars were being spent, they weren’t just ignored—they were targeted by this Administration.

We have a plan to put students’ futures first:
Advance the Parents’ Bill of Rights
Recover lost learning from school closures
Expand parental choice so more than a million more students can receive the education their parents know is best
Defend fairness by ensuring that only women can compete in women’s sports
The Parents Bill of Rights
Right to know what’s being taught in schools and to see reading material
Right to be heard
Right to see school budget and spending
Right to be updated on any violent activity at school
Many parents are frustrated with their K-12 public schools… we experienced over a year of closed schools, disastrous remote learning, misspent emergency federal money, refusal to meet the needs of children with disabilities, lowered academic standards, and classrooms focused on woke agendas rather than addressing learning loss and essential academic instruction — we’re fed up.
“From the classroom to school board meetings, parents demand unfettered accountability from those who are responsible for teaching their children. They are the torchbearers for their children’s education, and they are a force to be reckoned with.”
– Rep. Virginia Foxx (NC-05)
It’s crucial for the NCAA and the Biden administration to open their eyes and recognize the irrefutable damage that is being done to women’s sports and everything that Title IX was created for.

Achieve Longer, Healthier Lives for Americans
America is home to the best medical care in the world thanks to talented doctors and innovative treatments. But Democrats are determined to squander all these advantages by imposing a top-down, one-size-fits-all government approach from Washington that will only lead to rationed care and worse services.
U.S. life expectancy has decreased for two straight years, representing the biggest drop since 1943
The Democrats’ drug takeover scheme could lead to 135 fewer lifesaving treatments and cures
Health insurance inflation has increased premiums by 17% over the past year

Confront Big Tech and Demand Fairness
The age of social media promised to connect us with new people and ideas. Instead, Big Tech has tipped the scales to silence and censor those with conservative viewpoints. Worse than crystalizing an ideological echo chamber, these apps have proven to be incredibly addictive for children with potentially devastating consequences.
Children ages 8-18 years old now spend 7 1/2 hours per day on average in front of a screen
70% of Republican campaign emails go to spam on Google Mail, compared to just 10% of Democrat campaign emails
Big Tech kept election-related content from social media users no fewer than 16,007,321 times from April to June, stemming from 15 individual cases of censorship

Your platforms are my biggest fear as a parent.
I’m a mom of three school-aged kids. My husband and I are fighting the Big Tech battles in our household every day. It’s a battle for their development, a battle for their mental health, and ultimately, a battle for their safety.
