In August, State Senator Joe Pennacchio (R) and State Senator Holly Schepisi (R) raised their concerns during a virtual hearing on the content of what is proposed to be taught in schools as well as on standards that lack transparency and parental consent.

Congressman Sauickie added that his bill (A4801) “would override these standards and prohibit the state board from imposing similar curriculum requirements. New health education curriculum standards would be adopted by local school boards within 180 days of the bill’s enactment. “

The bill would also create Parent Advisory Committees in each school district that would be open to the public and the bill would also remove “requires the state Department of Education to provide sample learning activities, resources, or materials to local school districts on topics related to health and physical education.”

Its legislation was referred to the Assembly’s Education Committee.

Here is the statement on the new bill from Ocean County Assemblyman Alex Sauickie:

“Irresponsible bureaucrats creating inappropriate learning standards and imposing their curriculum on children and schools is an attack on common sense, our local educators and the domestic regime. This bill aims to shift power to the local level so that parents, teachers and school boards work together to develop a transparent, age-appropriate health and education program.

State officials have threatened school districts that fail to teach their appalling lesson plans. They aim to divide parents and children, schools and communities. I promise to put an end to it.

This measure is the opposite of a one-size-fits-all curriculum mandate, and it requires more transparency in the process. Community members are invested in the success of schools and students and should be given the opportunity to get involved.

“Some lesson plans that may be tied to state standards are downright X-rated material. age. We must put children and their educational and health needs ahead of political activists who have other priorities. Let children be children.
