The Wildrose Party has informed AHEA that they will be proposing two amendments to Bill 2 in the legislature. The following information regarding the exact wording of the proposal was provided:
Mr. Anderson to move that Bill 2, Education Act, be amended in the 8th recital of the Preamble, by striking out “parents have the right and the responsibility to make informed decisions respecting the education of their children” and substituting “parents have the paramount right and responsibility to make decisions respecting the education of their children”
Mr. Anderson to move that Bill 2, Education Act, be amended by striking out section 16 and substituting the following:
Education programs offered and instructional materials used in schools must
not promote or foster doctrines of racial or ethnic superiority or persecution,
religious intolerance or persecution, social change through violent action or
disobedience of laws.
(this clause is virtually identical to the second half of the previous section as it was written in the old Schools Act)
These amendments are supported by AHEA and HSLDA and are recommended as changes to Bill 2 Education Act.
