CHILDRENS BILL OF RIGHTS
"I hate rude behavior in a man. I won't tolerate it.”
- Captain Woodrow F. Call, Lonesome Dove
Thankfully, the Texas Education Code Chapter 26 Parental Rights and Responsibilities has an 'exemption from instruction' section that allows a parent to remove a child temporarily from a class or other school activity that conflicts with the parent's religious or moral beliefs. Just as Jehovah Witness children have been accommodated for decades in our public schools, your child can also be removed from the classroom if anything is presented that goes against your religious beliefs and values.
It's time for Christians take steps to protect our children. Schools ARE NOT what they were 20 years ago. Don't be naive and wait until your values have been trampled. Do not wait. Put your child's school 'on notice' today.
Both documents below are available to be copied, pasted and edited to reflect your own beliefs.
