The Arizona Senate passed HB2035; a new version of SB1456 parental rights in sex education by a vote of 16-13-1.
HB2035 addresses Governor Ducey's concerns raised in his veto letter and codifies his executive order.
Parents should not have to worry about what schools are teaching their children about human sexuality.
HB2035 does the following:
- Protects young children from sexual content they are not mature enough to handle by prohibiting sex education in K-4.
- Provides transparency by providing easy access to related curricula both online and in person. for schools offering sex education in grades 5 – 12.
- Currently sex education is opt-in. HB2035 would require the same for any sexuality-related instruction.
- Places other transparency measures in place to safeguard parental rights
