Concord, NH- House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement after the House failed to pass HB10, establishing the parental bill of rights, on a vote of 189-195.
“This bill sought to answer one fundamental question: who are your children’s parents? You, or the state? Democrats want school to be a black box for you to deposit your children. What goes on in school? Who knows, but it seems House Democrats evidently want to ensure that you stay in the dark and the government remains in charge of your children.”
“It is unfortunate that the members of the House were swayed by scare tactics and false information. Educators and parents should be partners in a child’s education, and it is not the job of school administrators sitting behind a desk to decide what gets shared with parents and what is deliberately kept from them. Sadly, today every Democrat in the House chose to support systems and secrets over parents.”
