Congresswoman Ashley Hinson released a statement on Tuesday regarding the new school policy passed by the Linn-Mar School District. Hinson, who is a cosponsor of the Parents Bill of Rights Act, has her two children in the Linn-Mar District.
“Across the country, and now at Linn-Mar, there has been a disturbing trend of parents being boxed out of decisions that should be made between a parent and their child, not between a school and a child. My two boys, Max (11) and Jax (9), attend Linn-Mar schools. There is nothing I care more about than their wellbeing and happiness. As their mom, I need to know about, and be actively involved in, decisions that impact them. I oppose this policy, and others like it, that wrongly circumvent and undermine parents.” -Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
